About the Show
The New School’s College of Performing Arts – School of Drama Directing Festival presents Blood Wedding (Bodas de Sangre) by Federico García Lorca, translated by Caridad Svich, directed by Andrés López-Alicea.
In a conservative society, a woman forces herself into a marriage of convenience, only to discover that her true passion lies with her past lover – a passion that drags her down like a river – bringing together a marriage between Love and Death.
With a cast of 10, this show was designed with a tight color palette and ensemble mentality. Performers were highly physical and were playing ensemble and multiple roles which they had to shift into in seconds. This was done with layers that turned from skirts to head scarfs, layers removed to reveal other hidden looks. the palette reflected a doomed and stuck past of the characters worlds.
