Workshop on Federico Garcia Lorca's play "Yerma" - Saturday 19th August at 2pm
Set in rural Spain in the 1930s, Yerma is one of Federico Garcia Lorca's most acclaimed theatre plays.
Yerma deals with the themes of isolation, passion, and frustration but also the underlying themes of nature, marriage, jealousy, and friendship. Social conventions of the period also play a large part in the play's plot.
In this workshop in Spanish, we will discover Lorca's poignant biography, as well as discuss the play's plot, analyse its complex characters, and learn about Spain's turbulent historical context.
Led by our lovely teacher, Alba (BA in Hispanic Language and Literature), you will be guided step by step into Lorca's work by using a variety of enjoyable exercises and interactive activities.
Do not miss this great opportunity to discover a classic jewel of 20th century literature in Spanish. Join us on Saturday 19th August at 2pm in Clapham North Art Centre (26-32 Voltaire Rd, London SW4 6DH).
This activity is recommended for students with at least an A2 level of Spanish (Continuacion courses and above).
To make the most of this workshop, please read the play in Spanish before attending. A free pdf can easily be found online, or please contact us if you wish to receive one.
