“Blood Wedding,” the classic Spanish play by Federico Garcia Lorca that erupts into a deadly dance of love and deception, family and revenge, beauty and betrayal, will open the 2017-2018 season for California State University, Dominguez Hills’ (CSUDH) Department of Theatre and Dance on Oct. 6.
Featuring an El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) look and style, “Blood Wedding” is the tale of a young bride-to-be who receives a visit from Leonardo, a former lover who stirs up trouble on her wedding day, sparking a family blood feud that threatens the celebration. The play is directed by CSUDH Professor of Theatre Arts Marla Ladd and choreographed by Dance Professor Sarah Cashmore.
“In this production, we are using the rhythms of classic music and dance to help exemplify the sensuality of the people who are trapped in a cycle of murder and revenge,” said Ladd. “There is a mystical presence that has bound them to each other and the land in the never ending dance with death.”
When and Where: “Blood Wedding” will be performed in the University Theatre on Oct. 6, 7, 13, and 14 at 8 p.m., and on Oct. 8 at 2 p.m.
