The Mysteries of Love is the second breathtaking collaboration between Erna Omarsdottir and Johann Johannsson. With an eminently Icelandic mixture of horror, beauty, pathos and irony, the performance delves into the physical transformations and emotional extremes of teenagers and adolescence. Drawing on film scores, folk-tunes and heavy metal culture, two performers use their voices as an extension of the body. At times, the voice is melodic, at others it becomes a generator of noises ranging from animalistic screams, shrieks, rumbles and grunts to childlike babble, almost imperceptible warbles and uncanny siren songs.
