Dancing Madness

Opta a: Premio FUNDOS

Three contemporary women dancers aim to create a choreography that explores the limits between normality and madness and invite three women diagnosed with mental disorders to share their creative process with them. They all stay in a house in the Basque Country to attend rehearsals together and discover what a psychiatric diagnosis implies. They talk about drugs side effects, delusions and suicide. But also about loneliness and friendship. Without prejudices. In a human journey that breaks taboos about madness.
