CSVPA Drama students present Blood Wedding
by Federico Garcia Lorca
a version by Tanya Ronder
by arrangement with Nick Hern Books

Thursday 15 June, 7.30pm 
Friday 16 June, 2.30pm and 7.30pm

“There’s a shout behind my chest, crouching, always ready”.

What happens if we refuse to suppress that voice that resides in us all, that speaks to our core, and only tells the truth?

A wedding. From daybreak to nightfall. A passage from childhood to adulthood, and a progression though life and time. In the space of that day lives are irreparably changed – forever. And the days to follow will be the hardest.

Mixing the real and the surreal, Lorca’s rural tragedy is evoked through an ensemble cast of diverse origins, interpreting the poetry of the words both as a spoken and shared physical language. Intertwining movement, imagery and the emotionally charged poetry of Lorca, the company of actors deliver a fateful narrative with the power of the bull getting to its feet.

Performed by the Classical and Contemporary Acting Students on the Drama Foundation at Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts.

Suitable for ages 14+
