Smokefall

Backyard Renaissance Theatre Company, as a part of the La Jolla Playhouse Resident Theatre Program, presents the San Diego premiere of Smokefall.

Change is in the air as Violet prepares to bring twin boys into the world. Inside her womb, her unborn sons contemplate their future, while the world around her is in transformation: her husband is secretly planning to leave her, her father is slipping into senility and her daughter has taken a vow of silence. Haunting and slyly funny, Smokefall explores the lives of this family in a lyrical treatise on the fragility of life and the power of love.

Giselle

May 30 - May 31, 2020

Bringing the beauty of classical ballet front and center, SDB’s new staging of GISELLE is a haunting rumination on romantic love and sacrifice. Traditionally, placed in 19th century Europe, Artistic Director Javier Velasco’s evocative production shifts the locale to the pueblos and ranchos of Spanish Colonial California. The tale of a simple peasant girl who’s love for a nobleman sparks tragedy takes on new life through the lens of San Diego’s early history. As does the poetic second act, featuring the spectral, beautiful Lloronas, the spirits of young women seeking revenge on the men who betrayed them. Highlighting classical dance in it most expressive and dramatic form.

Performed to pre-recorded music.
