ALLOUAQUI DANCE THEATRE & POLLY FRANKS

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.
