Based on the figure of Federico García Lorca, Carlos Saura creates a theatrical show that includes all the artistic disciplines that he has cultivated throughout his long career: music, photography, painting, dance and cinema. The singer India Martínez, an artist with a great artistic career consolidated and recognized nationally and internationally and winner of the Goya Award for Best Original Song in 2015, makes her debut as an actress in this great global show in which she will interpret and sing, accompanied on stage by others actors and musicians. Saura has wanted, exceptionally, to be a woman who interprets the role of the poet, since her message is universal and timeless.
The actors will recreate Lorca’s life on stage, from his birth in the vega of Granada, through his stay in the student residence, his trips to New York, Cuba and Argentina, the creation of the Barraca, until the final outcome of his execution in the Civil War.
