There's Blood at the Wedding is set within six giant-scale pop-up book constructions, through which we reflect on the lives and deaths of six victims of police violence: Sandra Bland, Sean Bell, Philando Castile, Justine Damond, Amadou Diallo, and Eric Garner. Sxip Shirey composes and performs original songs and music. Fragments of Federico García Lorca's masterpiece Blood Wedding</i. connect a Circle of Mothers — the mothers of the American victims — with the grieving mothers of the classic Spanish play.
