Antonio Gades

Original title

Bodas de Sangre

Antonio Gades shows his mature vision of flamenco in this dance version of Lorca's classic.

Inspired by the story 'Blood Wedding' by García Lorca, the dancer and choreographer Antonio Gades composed this work which features a combination of theatre and dance and highlights the great dramas of life and death. The artist wished to create a vehicle for his vision of flamenco, which included elements of classical dance and used new generations of dancers. Although the text of the original work was eliminated, its message remained clear thanks to the expressive qualities of these young performers.
In 1981, and in spite of his temporary retirement from the stage, the choreographer agreed to collaborate with the director Carlos Saura to adapt the work for the cinema, and this became the first part of a trilogy dedicated to the world of flamenco.
