Conversations is a premiere by multi-talented choreographer/writer Serge Bennathan featuring Billy Marchenski and Danny Wild.

Based on an imaginary encounter between great Spanish poet and playwright Federico Garcia Lorca (murdered by pro-Franco militias in 1936) and Juan Luis Trescastro (his assassin), this work explores the juxtaposition of poetry with history and how in Franco’s Spain, poetry was a tool, if not a weapon, to battle injustice.

Conversations positions the brutality of one against the poetry of the other, but the truth is roles are not as clear as they seem, and this revelation slowly unveils itself throughout the performance.
