Antonio Gades Bodas de Sangre

Antonio Gades Bodas de Sangre 

A Spanish dance troupe gathers in a threadbare studio to perform a dress rehearsal for a flamenco interpretation of Federico Garcia Lorca’s play “Blood Wedding.” Choreographer and lead dancer Leonardo (Antonio Gades) is interviewed as the rest of the troupe makes final back-stage preparations. Without dialogue and through their movements alone, the dancers tell the tragic tale of two doomed lovers and a bridegroom who meet their fates in a violent knife fight.
