His work Conversations, performed by Billy Marchenski and Danny Wild, stages a hypothetical encounter between the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca and his assassin Juan Luis Trescastro. According to the company’s website, the piece “explores the juxtaposition of poetry with history and how in Franco’s Spain, poetry was a tool, if not a weapon, to battle injustice.” Be sure to catch the post-show artist talk back on February 11th.Be sure to check out the November 1998 issue of The Dance Current print magazine for an item on Serge Bennathan.
