About performance

Love, hatred, life, death. Classical equation with two unknowns

The Spanish poet and playwright Federico García Lorca (1898 – 1936) is making a comeback on stage the Slovak National Theatre. It has been half a century since his House of Bernarda Alba was staged here by Alfréd Radok. The Blood Wedding was staged at the SND Shortly after the war by Jindřich Honzl. Lorca´s fate would itself suffice for a stage play. Nonetheless, we shall be revisiting his text that combines folk culture with avantgarde, traditional world of weddings, untouchable rituals and passion of the moment, with fleeing love.  The Bride knows whom to marry and the Groom is preparing for the wedding in all seriousness. Yet Leonardo enters their fate: everyone´s ideas fall apart like a house of cards. Still, we keep on asking: How about the other characters, who are parents and grandparents by now? Do they know what maddening desire is all about? Is love the realm of the youth, or are we all somewhat like the parting Bride and the betrayed Groom?
