In an isolated village, a bride is visited on her wedding day by her former lover. This act of rebellion sparks a sequence of events that will shock everyone, from the flower girls to the vengeful Moon above. In a translation by famed American poet Langston Hughes, Federico García Lorca’s iconic Andalusian tale explodes notions of violence, desire, shared history and community – reminding us that the only undeniable truths are love, death, and change.
Incorporating live music, dance, and art installation from a host of creative collaborators, The Williams Project’s Blood Wedding is not just a piece of theatre. It's a play, a block party, a communal meal, a concert, a gathering space for friends and strangers. In other words, everyone is invited to the wedding!
Arrive at 7:00PM to wander the pre-show festival; food and drinks will be available for purchase. The play itself will begin at 8:00PM and take place in Equinox Studios’s outdoor courtyards. Dress comfortably, in anticipation of the elements and moving multiple times throughout the performance.
