Acts recounted in a newspaper clipping are re-drawn in a symbolic landscape where unbridled desire, civilised celebration, and fatalistic dread entwine toward a violent pinnacle. Written in 1932, Bodas de Sangre is a classic tale of forbidden love and retribution from the mountains of rural Spain. Andrew invited Iain Sinclair to translate and direct Lorca’s tragedy for final year students at AADA. The following year, Sydney Theatre Company programmed this new version, starring Leah Purcell.
