Photo Flash: Get A First Look At Ballet Hispanico's WAITING FOR PEPE
BroadwayWorld has a first look at Ballet Hispanico's WAITING FOR PEPE.
As a young gay man growing up in Spain, choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra was bullied and rejected by his peers. Federico García Lorca's 1936 play, The House of Bernarda Alba, changed his life -- García Lorca's brave and unique voice challenged the oppressive nature of Spanish society, and gave a scared young teenager the courage to speak, to love himself, and to find freedom. In Waiting for Pepe, Pons Guerra infuses García Lorca's tale of family intrigue with the exuberant theatricality of Latin films and telenovelas.
Waiting for Pepe features Music by Banda Ionica, Chavela Vargas, Carlos Campos, ad Par Ney da Castro, Lighting Design by Bob Franklin, and Costume Design by Ghabriello Fernando.
