Chronicle of a Death Foretold

Chronicle of a Death Foretold

A small town witnesses one of its grandest weddings. The night of the wedding the bride groom rejects the young girl he married; a murder follows, but this narrative is no thriller. Before the crime is even committed, the town knows the where, when and why of it all. The story is of the community’s collective guilt; “honor is love” —that’s what they all said. The performance is an unusual combination of the use of storytelling technique and characters’ first person accounts that are sometimes varying, some similar, some shaky, at times minutely detailed and some fading recollections of the honor killing. As the characters strain their memory or pour out a still open wound from the murder, the shadowy recounting of the past in Garcia Marquez’s epic narrative reveals itself in magical and fantastic visuals.
