A WRITER, A TYPEWRITER AND THE MATTER OF LOVE
A Writer, a Typewriter and the Matter of Love – a collaborative choreographic exploration with Polly Franks into the connections between the concept of love and the absurd. Inspired by a variety of literary and philosophical texts on love, Ronald Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse and Jason Silva’s video series Shots of Awe, A Writer, a Typewriter and the Matter of Love plays with, exposes and satirizes the feelings of the lovers and the beloved.
On stage, a struggling writer dedicated to finishing writing a book on love seeks inspiration in the memories of his past lovers, who come to life to remind him all these moments he succeeded and failed in love.
I have no idea what love is. I have certainly experienced it and luckily more than once, but I just can not explain what it is. Isn’t that the first thing that makes love absurd? – The Writer.
