Built on the Johns Hopkins University Campus.
They joke childishly with each other, with Dolores eventually sitting on her father’s lap while he bounces her on his knee. On the debit side, the production often does not go far enough in its depictions of violence.
Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. The father, with his bright red jacket, angular face, and slim body, takes on the grotesque hue of a devil.

They have produced a play by Griselda Gambaro, a contemporary Argentine playwright whose work is too rarely seen in the United States. The terror often overwhelms in its intensity and precision, explaining The Padre orders Rafael’s death, and upon viewing his lifeless body, Dolores vows revenge.

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Contact Contact Us Help. The actors, Anilu Pardo and Gonzalo Villanueva, perform with passion and conviction, making the relationship believable, and ultimately tragic. In contrasting scenes, Gambaro trenchantly displays the irony and cruelty of power relationships. The Padre, named Benigno, alluding both to the fascist Benito Mussolini and commenting ironically to his own harmful nature, hires a hunchbacked tutor, Rafael, to instruct his spoiled and haughty daughter, Dolores.
In order for the play to work dramatically, Dolores and Rafael must have a chemistry that bespeaks love and hate simultaneously.
Though the production, by the Mexican director Alejandra Orozco, downplays the political for the personal, the many confrontations in the play strikingly display the power relationships. However, the Madre informs the Padre of their stratagem. Theatricality becomes a form of torture for Dolores, and perhaps, the audience. The superficially frolicsome act horrifies with its sexual suggestion of incest and underlying violence. Gambaro’s dramaturgy is one of extremes.

Project MUSE – La Malasangre (review)
His sadistic character is captured convincingly by the attractive actor Gerardo Gudino. With a startling light change, Dolores alters expression and stares at her father, now cognizant of the real pain that she has effected. In addition, Dolores suffers in watching this decent man abused. The scene ends in a hellish, blackish red light, foreshadowing the blood that will soon run.
Dolores’s father ignores this sexual assault. After he does indeed strike her, she calls her father Benigno played by Mauricio Bustamente, who [End Page ] easily moves between the character’s authoritative and comedic features, making Benigno a sadistic prankster. The two young people eventually fall in love and plan their escape. The tone of playfulness shifts abruptly to naked violence as Rafael is dragged away by the father’s lackey, Fermin Dario Tangelsona creepy, fawning fellow.
Further adding to the disturbing nature of the scene, the father orders Fermin to dance with Rafael, to humiliate the already victimized tutor.
