BODAS DE SANGRE

Blood Wedding, by Federico Garcia LorcaTranslated by Iain SinclairThe year was 1932. Spain was enjoying an exhilarating period of enormous artistic energy. Federico Garcia Lorca was thriving creatively, invigorated by friendships with the likes of filmmaker Luis Buñuel and a young, wonderfully eccentric Salvador Dali. But despite Blood Wedding growing from this hotbed of creative freedom, Lorca chose to set the play in a world of stifling oppression; a world which ominously foreshadowed the future for both the playwright and the nation. Just four years after this enthralling tragedy of thwarted love, desire and heartbreak was written, the Spanish Civil War erupted and Lorca was executed by the Fascists on suspicion of being homosexual.

Dates & prices and more info at: http://www.sydneytheatre.com.au/2011/blood-wedding

Film screening oscar: The Color of Destiny

"Óscar. The Color of Destiny" is a revealing portrayal of a forgotten icon of French Surrealism: Spanish painter Óscar Domínguez, contemporary of Picasso. The film rediscovers the life of a talented artist who was ignored after he committed suicide, fifty years ago, victim of a serious illness which had disfigured his body: the Elephant Man's disease. The film is stirring and touching and compels admiration for the bohemian painter whose fate was self-destruction, after a wild crazy life. Lucas Fernández turns the life of a debauchee, who regarded himself a monster because of his disfiguring disease, into a universal story where art is the product of love and loneliness, of sex and violence before, during and after the Nazi invasion of Paris.

Location: instituto Cervantes - Auditorio: 22-24 City Road, 2008 Chippendale NSW.
