Using stand-up routines, marionettes, toys, miniatures and an iRobot Roomba vacuum cleaner, Antonio Vega (Working on a Special Day), performs this story about New York, loneliness, art, and one immigrant's version of the American dream, but most importantly, The Duchamp Syndrome is the story of our innate desire to make our mothers proud. 

Juan, an imaginative Mexican janitor in New York feels so lonely that he starts making his own friends, literally. Juan becomes obsessed with the world of stand-up comedy and starts writing and practising his own comedic routines aided by Tony, a foul-mouthed cockroach with amazing timing and a smooth delivery. Things get complicated when Juan's mother gets a tourist visa and announces she is coming to witness her son's success.
