Our performance of Lorca’s La Casa de Bernarda Alba is a vital platform for our women and our growing multi-cultural society. In the face of our current political climate, it is our hope that this performance will mount and engage our audience to stand against systems of gender regulation and the adversity of multi-culturalism.
This play will attempt to explore the generational gap between Maria Josefa, Bernarda Alba, and Adela. Lorca’s text “La Casa de Bernarda Alba” as a way to critically analyze the internal workings of language and conceptual systems, and the relational quality of meaning.
In a small and repressed Spanish village at the turn of the 20th century, a family of women lives at the intersection of grief, tradition, and desire. We have brought together a cast of multi-lingual women whose voices weave together their common struggle from all over the World.
