CAL STATE L.A. PRESENTS
SPANISH LANGUAGE BODAS DE SANGRE,
BY FEDERICO GARCIA LORCA

Directed by award-winning director Alejandra Flores

What & Who:
California State University, Los Angeles presents a bilingual production by Bodas de sangre (Blood Wedding), a drama by Spanish playwright and poet Federico García Lorca, and directed by the award-winning Alejandra Flores. Lorca's play is a love tragedy and a poetic meditation on social violence. Although set in the Spanish countryside, Lorca's drama reaches universal proportions in its illumination of the passionate and, often times, self-destructive side of human nature.

When:
Thursday, April 8-Sunday, April 11, 1999. (Performances will be in Spanish.)
Show time: April 8-10, 8 p.m., and April 10-11, matinée at 2:30 p.m.

Where:
Cal State L.A. State Playhouse. The University is located at the Eastern Avenue exit, San Bernardino (I-10) Freeway, at the interchange of the 10 and 710 Freeways. Public dispenser permit parking at .50¢ per hour is available in Lots C and G, and North Parking Structure II.

More:
The play features choreography by Gema Sandoval, music by René Aravena, and a work by Chicano muralist George Yepes that will occupy the central set of this production.

Lecture:
On Friday, April 9, 4-6 p.m., a symposium will be held at Cal State L.A.'s Maxwell Theatre, University-Student Union, on Lorca's Bodas de sangre. This event is free and open to the public.
