With its precise and clinical language, composed of mysterious and erotic details, Virgin Suicides is inspired upon the text with the same name by Jeffrey Eugenides, adapt to cinema in 1999 by Sofia Coppola, and the novella Mine-Haha by Frank Wedekind. Performed by Luísa Cruz, Vera Mantero, Mariana Tengner Barros and young gymnasts, the show portrays the education of a group of adolescent girls dedicated to physical education, theatre and dance. They live in an apparently idyllic environment, although they lead a cloistered life with a rigid routine. There is something disturbing going on between the walls of this place: besides the fact that the girls are suffering a life of absolute isolation, disconnected from the rest of the world, their submission to a severe physical discipline arouses in each of them a state of exception and violent wishes for annihilation.
