Lorca, POET IN NEW YORK – bilingual production in the Big Apple

According to the French publication VOCABLE – ESPAGNOL (‘Lorca vuelve a Nueva York’ – ‘Lorca returns to New York’, 15-20 December 2005, p. 29), 2006 will see the premiere at an off-Broadway venue of a dramatised version of Federico García Lorca’s major poem-sequence, POETA EN NEW YORK (POET IN NEW YORK), written in 1929-1930 and published posthumously in 1940. The show will be bilingual, performed on alternate nights in Spanish and English. This exemplary bilingual gesture seems especially suited to a work which is not only about an intercultural encounter but was actually first published (in the USA) in a parallel-text bilingual edition.
