Blood Wedding (2015)

Blood Wedding is a Spanish tragedy from the early 20th century, written by Federico García Lorca. The play is really interesting - the first half is a rural drama about two families preparing for the wedding of their children. The second half gets a bit weird - not to spoil anything, but the moon is introduced as a character and all sorts of dark and strange things start happening. This was the first piece I did with the theatre group that would become Pharmacy Theatre.

We had a live string trio playing my score for this, and I was very lucky to collaborate with Tom O’Connor on this, who wrote and performed live electronics. Our creepy moon was played by the super-talented Siwan Clark, a harpist and singer, who set all her lines to music, which she wrote herself, as well as acting. Quadruple threat.
