HIGHLAND LAKE, NY — NACL Theatre continues its 14th season of new and innovative performance. An experimental multi-media presentation of Loarca’s Blood Wedding will be held Saturday, August 23 at 7:30 p.m.

Phoenix-based Orange Theatre presents “Blood Wedding,” a new work of digital performance inspired by Federico García Lorca’s classic play and the campy, provocative 1965 flick “Bad Girls Go to Hell,” by Doris Wishman, the “mother of sexploitation.” In Orange’s unique multimedia approach to theatre, the performers use interactive technology to take control of lighting, sound and video effects. Narrative threads of Lorca’s original doomed love story remain intact, but through manipulated video feeds and live dubbing, the company stages a mediated encounter that is dynamic, irreverent, and full of unexpected choices. The 11-member company of dynamic performers deliver and exciting and visually rich spectacle.

Tickets cost $20. Call 845/557-0694. Buy tickets online at www.nacl.org or at the door.
