Improper Fractions in association with Instituto Cervantes presents a theatrical adaptation of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novella Chronicle of a Death Foretold. A young girl is returned to her parents by her husband on her wedding night; a murder follows, but this narrative is no thriller. Before the crime is even committed, the whole village knows the where, when and why of it all. The story is of the community's collective guilt; 'Honor is love' - that's what they all said. The performance is an unusual combination of the use of storytelling technique and characters' first person accounts that are sometimes varying, some similar, some shaky, at times minutely detailed and some fading recollections of the honor killing. As the characters strain their memory or pour out a still open wound from the murder, the shadowy recounting of the past in Garcia Marquez's epic narrative reveals itself in magical and fantastic visuals.
