The plays of Federico Garcia Lorca are not easy to stage. His lyrical--if often violent and angry--dramas are clear-cut, bare-boned and explicit. There is not a Lorca play that does not require extensive production values to bring the heart and meat out of the writing. Those values are the high point of this production of "Blood Wedding" at Rancho Santiago College's Little Theatre West.

"A Tribute to Cruz Luna" featured some very good Spanish dancing, but lacked focus as a celebration of the work of this well-established local dancer/teacher/former company director. No background on Luna was presented in Lola Montes' short welcoming speech Sunday at Pasadena City College or in the printed program, and no explicit connection was drawn to Luna's style or repertory.

The six-week series of small-scale flamenco programs at the Fountain Theatre ended Wed- nesday with a sold-out performance memorable for commanding solos by Juan Talavera and guest artist Maria Bermudez. Until a joyous passage at the very end, Talavera opted for a clenched, sullen and even threatening demeanor with angry outbursts of thunderous, high-speed steps and handclaps.

If the Fountain Theatre's ongoing Festival of Percussive Dance were to crown a king, it would have to be Juan Talavera. A top gun in the flamenco footwork field, Talavera unleashed a rhythmic fusillade during one of his solos on Thursday night that could have wakened the dead with what sounded like an ecstasy of relentlessly racing heartbeats.
