With Désir, Terre et Sang (literally Desire, Earth and Blood), Dominique Serron takes Lorca’s three rural plays: Yerma, The House of Bernarda Alba, Blood Wedding and offers a redesign into a poetic, original and subversive performance. A modern drama in the heart of music, body and human passion: a merciless fight between desire and suffocating traditions, Lorca’s fondness for the land, for the Andalusian people and for the defense of women in an inhumanely harsh world.
A show supported by dancing, singing and music and interpreted by a troupe of 17 musicians and actors in the dedicated space of the theatre tent. This is a place of proximity and confrontation, amplifying the experience thanks to its traditional structure.
With Désir, Terre et Sang, we show that today’s theatre is still in line with the breath and spirit Lorca envisioned and introduced with his travelling troupe La Barraca. Having fulfilled, long before others, the experience of a travelling popular theatre, Lorca succeeded in giving his approach an early modernity through an inspired and liberated writing style, among other things through surrealism.
