You will need to download WordPress from the WordPress.org site and install it on your webserver by unpacking the files and uploading them to the site root. Once you have wordpress installed you can download the theme that you linked. Unzip this file and upload the directory to the wp-content/themes/ directory on the site. Once the directory is in the theme directory you should be able to use the Theme picker inside of wordpress admin to chose the new theme you uploaded.
