Fiesta (The Sun Also Rises)
Fiesta is a fiercely original theatrical experience, fusing explosive theatre, live jazz performance and dynamic choreography into a play that sees the sensual beauty and the raw brutality of Ernest Hemingway's tale of love, loss and decadence. Fiesta is based on one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century, Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. American writer Jake, is one of 'the lost generation' post WWI living a bohemian lifestyle in Paris in the 1920s, with fellow expat, novelist Robert, until the arrival of the irresistible Lady Brett Ashley throws their lives into turmoil. Jake's obsession with bullfighting takes them to Pamplona, Spain, to experience the testosterone fuelled world of bullfighting. In the sweltering heat of Spain they meet the beguiling bullfighter Romero and a violent spectacle unfolds. The explosive jazz band, Trio Farouche, perform live in Fiesta and the kinetic energy between cast and musicians erupts in Spain, with the actors becoming saturated with red wine as it spills from the set - capturing the passionate spirit of Pamplona's Fiesta, within the intimate space of Trafalgar Studio 2.
from the novel by Ernest Hemingway
