The Department of Theater and Dance and
Dance Theater at IUP will present a dance adaptation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s
famous tale Blood Wedding. The
production will run November 4 and 5, 2016, at 7:00 p.m. and November 6 at 2:00
pm. Performances will be presented in the Zink Hall Dance Theater.
Wedding is a classic tragedy set in
rural Spain. It examines the issues of choice, deception, and fate within
societal constraints. The dance unfolds the passionate bloodlines of fidelity,
betrayal, and revenge within a disastrous love triangle as we follow the
choices and actions of three young adults. Ultimately, it questions the
authority of a community and families to place boundaries on love.
Wedding is choreographed and directed
by Holly Boda-Sutton to the compelling original music by David Martynuik. Nancy
Pipkin-Hutchinson serves as costume designer along with Brian Jones as lighting
and set designer, Charis Franco as projection visual designer, and Laura
Delbrugge as dramaturg.
