El Maleficio De La Mariposa
A spectacle based on the unfinished work by Federico Garcia Lorca

Directed by TBA

May 15 – June 9, 2024

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center

Building on the inventive work of both Shockheaded Peter and ALICE, Jobsite again brings our friends from all fields together to fuse live music, visual art, puppetry, aerial and circus arts, and plenty of good ol’ fashioned theater magic in an evening audiences won’t soon forget.

This dark comic fable takes place in a garden where a community of different insects is disrupted by the appearance of an injured butterfly.

El Maleficio de la Mariposa (English translation: The Butterfly’s Evil Spell) was the first play written by 20th century Spanish poet and dramatist Federico Garcia Lorca, however the script was lost and only later found incomplete – missing several pages and the ending. Now in the public domain, Jobsite intends on adapting this work in our unique style to create an event for audiences of all ages and both speakers of English and Spanish.
