Green , Howiwantyougreen with David Antonio Cruz

Green,Howiwantyougreen, is an experimental and interactive, bilingual performance based on the Spanish poet Garcia Lorca’s last eleven poems, Sonnets of Dark Love. The poems, dark and final meditations with flashes of passion, were banned for fifty years after his assassination in 1936. The poems are fused with personal coming-out stories and texts from Lillian Hellman’s “The Children Hours” and “Oscar Wilde” by Leslie and Sewell Stokes, both written around the time of Lorca’s assassination. The multilingual performances clash high art with queer slang, playing with language, music, and double entendres particular to Latino and Black underground gay culture.
