Teach us to outgrow our madness -Salamanca-

On wednesday 8th of June 2011 the danceperformance Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness by  Erna Omarsdottir will be presented in Teatro Caja Duero in Salamanca Spain at 20h00.

Five Nordic women. A terrifying secret. Five seemingly ageless creatures. Possessed by a spirit that turns this at times so well-mannered quintet into a Dionysian force. Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness sets out to explore the intense relationships that exist between women living closely together – be it sisters, nuns, witches, best friends, members of a sect, or polygamist wives. The rivalry, the secrecy, the gossip, the cruelty but also the kindness, the bonds, and the unconditional love. This piece combines dance, live music and storytelling into a horrifying yet liberating experience.
