David Antonio Cruz Green how I want you green

Green, how I Want You Green

David Antonio Cruz’s “Green, how I want you green” is an experimental and interactive, bilingual piece based on the last eleven poems, Sonnets of Dark Love, by the Spanish poet Garcia Lorca. The poems were banned for 50 years after his assassination in 1936. The poems are fused with personal narratives and text from Lillian Hellman’s The Children Hours and Oscar Wilde by Leslie and Sewell Stokes, both written around the time of Lorca’s assassination.

“Green, how I want you green,” is a follow up to The Opera, commissioned for El Museo del Barrio and presented for Performa 13.

A performance by David Antonio Cruz, Jennifer Jade Ledesna, Diego Carvajal Peñaranda, Lisa Strum and Daniel de Jesus. Guest performance by Kharis Kennedy. All music is composed and arranged by Daniel de Jesus.
