Yerma

By Federico García Lorca Director Marc Chornet Artells

Genre

Tragèdia

Synopsis

Following Projecte Ingenu's success last season, Lorca's classic is back!

The relationship between Yerma and her husband gradually decays as, despite her desperate yearning, she does not fall pregnant. Life goes by and sadness overwhelms Yerma: the nostalgia of a possible teenage love that never was, the disillusionment of drifting friendships because of children, the loss of her youth and the marital home that is beginning to seem more like a prison. A raw portrait of the most private spheres of our society, where the realest tragedies happen, Yerma's intimate tragedy, the tragedy of not being able to break free from her own body. A contemporary play that reflects on the fecundity of our times.
