Of all the Beautiful Things in the World

Author(s): Yusra Warsama
Company: Yusra Warsama

Inspired by Lorca’s The House of Bernada Alba.

The air is closing in on a house, on an estate.

Within it, a woman tries to protect her adult daughters from what feels like a rapidly shifting world after the death of their father, it's the futile effort of a mother pushing invisible dark edges away.

She comes from a world of proverbs that predicts "The Youth Teach Their Mother to Give Birth". They come from a world where everyone acts like a walking proverb within 280 characters.

She has nomadic tones and they have south Manchester cadences. Their lives play out beneath a constant lens where they are always 'other' in the world...

Something's got to give.

Writer and director Yusra Warsama exports Lorca’s language to a Manchester Moss Side home.
