Federico GarcĂ­a Lorca's great tragedy of death and desire, Blood Wedding/Bodas de Sangre, will close the mainstage season of USF's School of Theatre & Dance. Directed by faculty member Dora Arreola, the production will feature alternating performances in Spanish and English performed by two different casts.

Arreola, a recent addition to the School of Theatre & Dance, has a background both in physical theatre and in contemporary dance. "It has been one of my dreams, and now is a pleasure, to be directing Bodas de Sangre/Blood Wedding in both English and Spanish. Rehearsing the text in two languages allows us to understand Blood Wedding from different perspectives. In Spanish we embrace the beauty of the language and the metaphorical world of Lorca's play, while the text in English shows us a fresh perspective. Both allow us to extract into images the movements and emotions of the surrealistic world of Lorca and his artistic contemporaries in Spain.
