The Tenerife Auditorium presents, as part of its FAM Otoño (Autumn Moving Arts Festival) programming, the show "A muerte" ("To Death"), by the Gestring Sisters.
To death as a motto.
To death as a way of life.
This is how we believe any stage piece has to be; this is how it should be represented... to death.
We have the irony of humanity in our veins, we are daughters of the 21st century, we are the result of all the previous garbage, we introduce ourselves with mockery and defiance… We don't know how to act any other way. The speed of time and the pace of life are just not enough for us; therefore, without hope and without fear, we face life to death.
Excited and almost possessed by pronouncing the words "to death", we had no other solution but to kill the Gestring Sisters:
We needed to reveal the true effect caused by saying the words “to death”: entering the suburbs of the underworld and coming face to face with Hades. After walking through the Fields of Asphodel for years, singing with the sirens, floating over the Acheron River and the Elm of False Dreams, we managed to adopt the form that would lead us to death. We were possessed by the Keres, the daughters of the night with thirst for human blood.
We have deceived Charon, Cerberus, as well as Morena and Clara... will we be able to deceive you?
