This monologue by Assumpta Rojas can be seen at Tantarantana until 5 February
Based on Antonina Rodrigo’s García Lorca en Cataluña, the monologue Hola Federico is focussed on Lorca’s intense and affectionate relationship with Catalonia. It’s a performance with which Assumpta Rojas is intimately involved, being responsible for the script, direction and staging. “When I read Rodrigo’s book I became fascinated by the figure of the poet. That led me to write this monologue, in which I address aspects of his personality and the deep impression that he left on Catalonia: his relationship with our country’s music and folklore; his time in Cadaqués and his great friendhip with the Dalí brothers; the presentation of his poetry book Poet in New York at The Hotel Ritz...", claims Rojas, who aims to “transmit the admiration and tenderness that the poet awakened in me”.
Hola Federico premiered on 26 January and can be seen at Teatre Tantarantana until 5 February. The actress’s voice will be accompanied on stage by photographs and Manuel Veiga’s off-stage voice in the role of Lorca and that of Cristina Dilla as Anna M. Dalí. The performance is in Spanish and lasts around an hour and features poems by the immortal Lorca.
