Federico towards Lorca

Note: The show uses

Strobe lights

federico to lorca

After the centenary of Lorca's arrival at the Residencia de Estudiantes in Madrid, we have a work that includes a large number of texts by Lorca in a dramatization by Nando López and Irma Correa. The thirty-eight years of Federico García Lorca are crossed by life and death. Bubbles of both pass through his life and make him breathe light and blood, flesh and love. We imagine a text inhabited by moments from his arrival in Madrid to the last look at the bullet that went through it. An approach to the young, alive Lorca and also to the Lorca friend, to the excessive, to the traveler, to the lover of skin and words.
