LOVE IS … PRIME! | the empathic body vol.2

by Silke Z. and die metabolisten

PREMIERE: September 23 I ehrenfeldstudios, Cologne

Love is… affection, compliments, devotion, abandonment, basic trust, happiness,

protective and complicated.

In their new production, Silke Z. and the intergenerational ensemble die metabolisten devote themselves to the many facets of love.

It is about the moment of revelation, self-love, longing and lust, rapture and the power of love, but also about hate speech, saying no out loud or dissolving oneself in love.

The dancers have produced solo videos on one aspect of love, which serve as the basis for the production and the love parcours through the ehrenfeldstudios.

In video projections, sound installations and dance performances, the rooms of the ehrenfeldstudios will become a parcours of love in which the audience can move freely.

Join us in exploring the many facets of love and try to endure and defend this great feeling with us!
