Award-winning Catalan director Oriol Broggi directs a poetic and musical interpretation of Federic García Lorca's classic play

Author: Federico García Lorca. Director: Oriol Broggi. Starring: Ivan Benet, Nora Navas, Pau Roca, Clara Segura, Montse Vellvehí and a horse.

Oriol Broggi takes us to Andalucía in this production of Federico García Lorca's text, interpreting the Spanish writer's words as a long poem full of rhyme and music; it features original compositions by Joan Garriga and live music. The pace is fast with a series of different scenes, and entrances and exits that see actors and musicians intertwine as they give life to the bride, groom, mother... and all with the ambience of southern Spain, coloured by the dry, white landscape and the blood springing forth. You may not feel as though your language skills are up to seeing a play in Catalan, but the chance to see quality theatre from the likes of Broggi and Segura (oh, and the horse) is one certainly worth taking.
