    When a young bride-to-be receives a visit from a former paramour on her wedding day, a family blood feud threatens the celebration and sparks a deadly dance of love and deception, family and revenge, beauty and betrayal. 

    The IUP Dance Theater, under the direction of Holly Boda-Sutton and with composer David Martyniuk, presents this classic tragic tale by Spanish dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca, interpreted through dance to examine the passionate bloodlines of fidelity, betrayal, and revenge. Themes of choice, fate, and deception collide onstage, and, in the end, question the authority of the community to place boundaries on love.

    A seductive tale of passion and vendetta in a rural Spanish community, one that speaks to any heart longing for true connection.
