LOVE❤️ by Club Guy & Roni, GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Slagwerk Den Haag and the Asko|Schönberg ensemble with costume design by MAISON the FAUX
Wild aesthetics and a strong physical presence are a couple of the ingredients in the evening’s second piece: Love.
Amazing lover, perfect parent, amusing friend and understanding soulmate. Sexy, too! Is that even possible? Can any one person be all those things? Love is a portrait of love in the millennial generation, characterized by endless choices and a fear of missing out. It’s a frenzied pursuit of love as a cure for loneliness in a superficial world.
We expect from our great love that he or she will be our ideal sex partner, a fantastic parent, a buddy and a soulmate, and at least a little attractive. Our expectations of love are, possibly, a little high. And can you truly be with someone without losing your sense of individuality?
Love in all its many forms is one of the most important motivators of human relationships, and with it one of the most common subjects in the creative arts. LOVE❤️ is a portrait of love in the time of FOMO, a time of unlimited choice
