Blood Wedding


"I want from you neither bed nor food, yet there's not a minute each day that I don't want to be with you, because you drag me, and I come.”
Federico García Lorca


The piece explores the dichotomy of a bride who yearns for security, love and happiness with one man but is restless with desire for another. With a soul that is hungry for love and passion, living in a world of enforced conventionalism, her desires lead to her fateful darkness. This piece is loosely based on Blood Wedding by Federico García Lorca.


'The dancers partnering is coordinated, aggressively delicate, juicy... like the best sex ever! After a punching start, the tension decreases but not the intensity. Another duet, with Nacho Garoz in the male role, shows an austere yet beautiful sequence in a loop. The transitions from sober contemporary to feisty balletic ballroom are smooth, showing specially the versatility of the female.' Anna Cabre-Verdiell


'The night's finale is a cut above the rest and time to revel in movement....torrid entanglements with a red-blooded Stanley Kowalski type (Carmine De Amicis) provide some powerful partner work. Pulses are racing and bodies heaving in organic, earthy waves, but then Waghorn is whipped out and back in tight, lightning-quick Latin spins – it's an interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.' Lyndsey Winship
