Teach us to Outgrow our madness- next weekend in Amsterdam!


On saturday (2 july )and sunday (the 3july) 2011 the danceperformance Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness by  Erna Omarsdottir will be presented in Theater Bellevue in Amsterdam.

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.

Can theater teach us to survive daily live? Can singing and dancing heal
a troubled mind?

We like to sing and dance
Go into a trance
We like gore
We always want more
