Description

Federico Garcia Lorca: Moons of New York and Giant Moon


In 1933, Federico Garcia Lorca undertakes his second American adventure after his trip to New York of 1929 in Moons of New York. Argentina and Uruguay are waiting to crown him as one of the best playwrights of all time. There he lives the golden age of tango, meets Carlos Gardel and Jorge Luis Borges, and forges an unshakable friendship with the future Nobel Prize winner Pablo Neruda.


Luna Grande, un tango por García Lorca gathers the powerful influence of the great Granada author in Buenos Aires and Montevideo with the help of experts, anonymous personages and recognised names of culture like Lluís Pasqual, Juan Echanove, Verónica Forqué, Silvia Pérez Cruz, Paula Ortiz, Asier Etxeandia, Santiago Roncagliolo and Antonio de la Torre. This is the story of how Federico García Lorca conquered “a people for his theatre”.
