The Poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca
A unique and breath-taking concert of Spanish Poetry set to music.
The haunting and exotic poetry of the most celebrated writers in the Spanish Language: Federico Garcia Lorca, Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Pablo Neruda. Their dramatic and sensual poetry, performed as Songs and meticulously set to Keith’s rich, daring and fiery Classical guitar in a way that embraces the very fabric of these beautiful words, both surreal and romantic, until every tear is shed, every picture caught.
There is a huge resurgence of interest in the life and literary output of Federico Garcia Lorca.
Yerma, one of his most rich and powerful dramas has recently taken the west end of London by storm with Billie Piper taking the lead role. The anniversary of the Spanish Civil War has noticed almost all of Europe looking back on Lorca’s poetry and dramas as their concepts and words pull us inwards like a cyclone, only to then be standing face to face with the very same human frailties..
