Info

Is giving ourselves to another perhaps a contradiction in an era of self-realization, in a time of seeking who we truly are?

 

 

 

Who is talking about love in contemporary arts nowadays? Nearly nobody. But we do! We feel this big subject of theater must be explored strongly - even now in times of big changes and global faulting.

 

 

 

We live in an era of immense appeal of dating agencies, even mobile phone apps, now promising the impossible.

 

What is it which causes our somehow desperate search via technology, when we are actually seeking love?

 

Is it a search for a deeply felt loss of orientation, a general feeling of dread? Or are we really just looking for a mirror image? Why is love so very hard to find?

 

Is giving ourselves to another perhaps a contradiction in an era of self-realization, in a time of seeking who we truly are?

 

 

 

Iris Heitzinger and Dante Murillo explore the fundamental conditions of becoming a couple and explore their various inner and outer, even existential circumstances beginning with the playground leading to the 'battle ground' and back again.

 

It is a piece about yearning, about courage, about deep anxieties, dreams, about damages suffered...

 

It is a piece about resolution...

 

About doubts and trust, about expectations and disappointment, about competing, about attempts for dominance and submission, about the addiction to closeness followed by a need for inner and outer distancing, about the space we allow and the space we claim for ourselves, and finally, about immense tenderness, as well as a capacity for violence.

 

This is, ultimately, a declaration of love to a theatre which physically expresses a world of feelings, and what feelings are capable of making us do.

 

It is that which cannot be named, it is that we try to show in ways which resound.
