The House of Bernarda Alba

Federico Garcia Lorca 18+

Five girls are suffering in a tight cage of a house ruled by Bernarda. They crave for love and passion, they go crazy with the desire of touching a man and with the thought of its impossibility. Why a woman can make her own daughters feel like in jail? Was it disbelief? Hate? Love? Or jealousy? Why time has changed Bernarda so much? What can her tyranny lead to?

The dramatic story of several generations is told without words but with the expressive language of plastic drama.
