An authoritarian widow, after the death of her second husband, imposes 8 years of mourning and confinement on her five daughters…
After “Antigone” by Anoui, the Maria Protopappa returns to Basement of the Art Theatre directing one of the most important works of world drama, the last work of the Spanish writer and poet Federico García Lorca “Bernarda Alba’s house».
As stated in a production announcement about the project: A domineering widow, after the death of her second husband, imposes 8 years of mourning and confinement on her five daughters. They desperately react, each in their own way, and on the occasion of a new man, who for another is a lover, for another a suitor, for another a fantasy, the need for life swells, explodes and death hits home again for to drown it in a second wave of mourning
Lorca, although “privileged” in terms of class, resents poverty, hunger, social injustice, political instability and its accessories. With his special look, he leads the viewers to a corner of the world, to a barren land, an arid edge of it, where he places his magnifying and poetic lens over a “Home”, a symbolic place, where the stolen freedom and dignity of the women of his neighborhood, and not only, of his time, and not only, feeling horror at the way they were treated.
