|'Blood Wedding', Lorca's playwrights adaptation
|Saturday, 21 July 2012, 07:30pm |
To Saturday, 18 August 2012
Married life is a killer.
In this remarkable bilingual production directed by Marion Potts, the lush lyricism of Federico García Lorca's writing is wedded to a contemporary sensibility utterly of the now.
Devastating romance, a clash between desire and tradition, a rich paean to the Spanish soil and its culture of passion and ritual — Lorca's tour de force is all of these things.
Here, with music by Tim Rogers, and a cast of actors from across the globe, Blood Wedding will speak afresh of love's impossible magnetism, with the rhythms and poetry of Spanish as the refrains to which this timeless drama insistently returns.
From Saturday July 21 until Sunday August 19
