FLORES CAÍDOS is the story of 20th Century, closeted Spanish poet-playwright Federico García Lorca, resurrected into the 21st Century in an unapologetic Out and Proud Queer Latinx Production.
Through extensive research in Translation, Racial Identity, Queer History, Elegy and Decolonization, this performance stands as a monolith to what theatre can be.
FLORES CAÍDOS first premiered on October 15th 2020, during the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic. While the world held its breath, FLORES CAÍDOS proved Life theatre will always endure.
This project served as Chayton's senior thesis in Theater and performance Studies in partial fulfilment for a degree from Yale University.
This world premiere was made possible through the generosity of Lorca Coffee Bar, and the Yale Departments of Theatre and Performance Studies, Classics, and Spanish and Portuguese.
