Guernica Poster


Presented by SEC LIVE

Guernica is a tragic love story inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in the Spanish Civil War

In this atmosphere of destruction and sense of fear, when the darkness takes over, two young characters find the light in their hearts: a wonderful love story, inspired by Shakespeare’s tragedy.

With the illusion of being able to deal with the dark reality that surround them, the two lovers believe that the feeling of bliss found in their love can win out against this evident human cruelty. Outside the narrative, the central inspiration behind Simon Hoy’s Guernica is Picasso’s arresting 1937 master-work “Guernica” which to this day predominates as one of the most powerful antiwar symbols.
