BLOOD WEDDING

March 2 – April 24, 2016

Written by Federico Garcia Lorca
Translated by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata
Directed by Ensemble Member Daniel Ostling

When a young bride-to-be receives a visit from a former paramour on her wedding day, a family blood feud threatens the celebration and sparks a deadly dance of love and deception, family and revenge, beauty and betrayal. Lorca – one of Spain’s most revered and controversial dramatists – dared to pen a seductive tale of passion and vendetta in a rural Spanish community, one that speaks to any heart longing for true connection. Lookingglass celebrates Lorca’s revolutionary theatrical vision and this bold and timeless work in an immersive experience lush with music, movement, and poetic storytelling.
