As Five Years Pass

By Federico García Lorca
Directed by Bill Walters

Playful, profound, and powerful, As Five Years Pass is a deeply personal play which fuses memories from Federico García Lorca’s childhood with images from his imagination into what he called a “legend of time.” Drawing upon surrealist influences, it takes us into the wandering mind of a confused young man encountering the pain of love and reluctantly facing up to his future. Finished five years to the day before Lorca was murdered, this rarely performed play is a work filled with premonitions and startling surprises. One of his so-called “impossible plays”,  As Five Years Passhas been heralded as García Lorca’s "most original and experimental contribution to the theatre" and the play "in which we see the true depth of the great theatrical personality he would have become."

Radicles: Rediscovering humankind’s primary roots


An evening of site-specific dance
Choreographed by MFA in Dance Candidate Lisa Nevada

Radicles: Rediscovering humankind’s primary roots is an evening of site specific dance, choreographed by MFA in Dance candidate Lisa Nevada.  Set in Albuquerque's beautiful South Valley, west of the newly established Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, Radicles explores the significance of the human/nature interface. Using movement research and kinetic experiments directly connected to the sophisticated networks of soil, plants and trees, animals and water, Nevada along with composer Carl Landa, costume designers Jessica Greaves and Erik Flores, and ten extraordinary dance artists, has created an experience that will bring nature forward in untraditional and radical ways, and reawaken our souls to the fragility and importance of the natural world.
