STILL LOVE

About the performance

Still Love is a duet about relationships. Our individual stories come into dialogue through physical interaction in a playground-like environment. A landscape of states emerges, and our presence emanates through moment-to-moment responses, that make up the coherent arch of narratives and meaning. An ever-growing physicality anchors us to the space, and helps our emotions sublimate into differently coloured atmospheres. We play games to learn anew and to reinvent our love.
