Witch Song

Tim appears to be a perfectly normal teenager, while Lilith is generally regarded as an outsider. When she takes on the lead role of the Mexican witch, la bruja, in the theatre group play, strange things happen. As soon as la bruja steps onto the stage, all the others are spellbound in their roles. Also, a special relationship develops outside rehearsals between Tim and la bruja. But soon, rumours begin to circulate that Lilith really is a kind of witch as the dividing line between play and reality becomes increasingly blurred.

- Explores the topics of love, dangerous group dynamics and what it’s like to be the outsider
- A moving story that calls our own behaviour into question
- Outstanding narrative structure with two interwoven storylines
