'Muerto de Amor' has been a truly inspirational event and I'm extremely proud to have been part of it! We've had the honour to have the collaboration of amazing professionals from the world of theatre, poetry and puppets.
During the opening, the Goya award winner actor and director, Carlos Alvarez-Novoa, gave a speech on Lorca's work. We also had the pleasure to have the introduction to our catalogue written by him.
On the weekends, artist from SAL gave painting and ceramic workshops for children.
There was also a puppet show, 'Everything Counts' from Pedro Capdevila inspired in the work of Lorca.
The Bafta winner director, Alan Hescott directed the english version of "The Love of Don Perlimplín and Belisa in the Garden" which was performed by Multi Cultural Classics (MCC).
There was a night of poetry performance organized by Susie Campbell in which poets from different nationalities got together to pay homage to Lorca reading their work in at least 6 different languages. To see a selection of the poetry performances, please click on the names. Donall Dempsey, Janice Windle and Marc Carver.
On the last night (sat 9th oct), there'll be a performance of folk songs written by Lorca, the play, and a speech from actress and director Sudha Buchar, whose latest play 'The house of Bilquis Bibi', is inspired in 'The House of Bernarda Alba' but with reference to the pakistani culture.
All these events are taking place in the gallery space, giving each event a truly special and intimate feel!
It's been incredible to have seen so many people united and inspired by one single artist. Thank you Lorca and Carlos for organizing it!
