Locura


As human beings, we all try desperately to remove traces of madness within us. The society forces us to draw the boundary between being insane and "normal". But what if the best way to achieve the ultimate balance is to confess and accept this craziness, which lies in our unconscious mind, the source of our best ideas and inexplicable genius?

This piece is also meant for a play called "Seres" (Beings) by El Viejo Actor whose theatrical activities are held in Málaga, Spain. The plot is about the daily lives of certain people from different background and professions, living in a mental institution. The piece was performed at the Fidelio-Wettbewerb 2012.
