Blood Wedding

by Federico García Lorca
translated by Nahuel Telleria
directed by Csaba Horváth

On the morning of her wedding day, a young Bride is visited by a headstrong former lover, reigniting a family blood feud that has been simmering for years. Their isolated village is a pent-up powder keg of fury and desire, and when they escape together, all that repression is released — to destructive ends.

Acclaimed Hungarian director-choreographer Csaba Horváth leads the Wilma’s HotHouse Company of actors in a production combining athletic ensemble theater with Lorca’s fiery language. Magical realism at its richest and most tragic, this re-imagining of the Spanish classic is a searing investigation of passion in the Wilma’s signature style.
