Theatre, Hong Kong City Hall

"I touched her sleeping breasts and they opened to me suddenly like spikes of hyacinth. The starch of her petticoat sounded in my ears like a piece of silk rent by ten knives. The people swallow their sobbing and in the green mirrors long trails of silk move. The men kept to themselves. The women kept to themselves. And a horizon of dogs barked very far from the river"
Frederico Garcia Lorca

Adapted from Federico Garcia Lorca's play The House of Bernarda Alba
Adapted and Directed by Bonni Chan

A tragic tale of frustration, suppressed sexuality and explosive passions within a house ruled by a tyrant obsessed with power and snobbery
