La Casa de Bernarda Alba

Twenty years ago I spent a year in a remote Andalucian village. It was an invaluable insight into a passionate and contradictory society. When directing ‘La Casa de Bernarda Alba’ I wanted to examine the complex and tortuous relationship between Bernarda and her daughters, and between the sisters themselves. I also felt that their relationship with society was crucial. Surely, Bernarda is as much a victim as are her daughters? We strove to understand Bernarda’s and her daughters’ struggle, and sought to express that physically, emotionally and visually, working with an original score and washing colour across a stark white set to reflect the emotional richness of the world that was denied to the inhabitants of Bernarda’s house.
