Entwined: A Double Feature

PostClassical Ensemble celebrates the 100-year anniversary of Manuel de Falla’s work, “El retablo de maese Pedro,” at the Kennedy Center.

PostClassical Ensemble (PCE) and playwright / director Derek Goldman present the double feature Entwined: Love’s Magicians. This performance features the world premiere of Goldman’s new performance piece Entwined: Love’s Magicians, conjuring the deep and unlikely friendship between Federico García Lorca, widely regarded as the greatest Spanish poet of the twentieth century, and Manuel de Falla, Spain’s most prominent composer of the period.

In the second half of our double feature, PCE will perform de Falla’s El retablo de maese Pedro (Master Peter’s Puppet Show), which is inspired by Don Quixote. In this collaboration with visual artist Kevork Mourad, puppets are replaced by animation synced with the score performed by PCE. ‍
