Our friend Assaad Awad and his work are always an inspiration to us. Lately, Awad developed several creations for ‘El Público’, one of the most difficult and mysterious plays by Federico García Lorca and one of the great classics of Spanish theater. Written in Cuba, after a trip to New York, 'El Público' portrays a troubled period in the life of the poet and playwright, a time of intense experimentation in life and art.
With debut scheduled for today at the Teatro Real in Madrid, ‘El Público’ has a few pieces by Awad, as a sculptural dress with white tutu. While working on the pieces for the play, Awad has always kept close at hand his Yara glasses by Paulino Spectacles, we love it!
