In Wearing Lorca’s Bowtie fifteen individual artists find themselves in New York, dreaming of Lorca and wondering why it is that we continue to be drawn to this city to make our life and our art and exploring the peculiar brand of loneliness that this city can evoke. The piece blends fantasy with actual moments from Lorca’s work and trip – such as his famous witnessing of the 1929 stock market crash – with today’s experience of trying to make a life in New York during the biggest economic crisis since Lorca’s visit.
