Yerma is a humble peasant woman, who longs for a child. In her village all her friends are raising families, but she remains childless. She tries to be light-hearted and believes that she and her husband will soon be blessed with a baby. As long as her condition, or lack of it, is temporary, she endures it and seeks to remedy it! Gradually Yerma's deep love for her husband turns to disbelief and then hate as she discovers he does not want a child. Lorca's savage yet poetical lyrical play set in rural patriarchal and religiously repressive Spain is re-imagined as an Indian classical dance for an inner city British community.


Author Frederico Garcia Lorca
Choreographer Amina Khayyam
