Ira Avneri | I Wish You Were a WomanA piece for five actresses after Federico García Lorca's "Blood Wedding" and "Lament for Ignacio Sanchez Mejias". Following Simone de Beauvoir's famous claim that womanhood or femininity is not a biological feature but rather a social construct ("one is not born, but rather becomes, a woman"), the deconstruction of Lorca's texts aims to examine the process of 'becoming-woman' in a masculine society governed by loss, grief and bereavement.
