Noces de sang
Love and the absolute freedom of love are the grand concerns of Federico García Lorca. The story is drawn from a news item in the Catholic, macho Spain of the 1930s, soaked in the blood of vendettas and the bitterness of tribal violence.
Under Colombian director Omar Porras-Speck, Noces de Sang becomes a festive trance, a baroque carnival, a pagan rite of marriage between the earth and the moon, between a man and a she-wolf. The twelve actors embody Lorca¹s melodic language, dancing the heartbeat of his writing. Costumes, masks and make-up transmute bodies into mythical beasts that perform, lascivious and bewitched, this lunar tragedy. A hymn to indomitable love, to the wild woman.
