About the performance
Wild aesthetics and a strong physical presence are just a couple of the ingredients in 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.
The choreographic duo Guy Weizman and Roni Haver were inspired by “Venus in furs”, an 1870 classic erotic novella by Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, whose name has lived on in the term masochism: the desire for submission.
Roni Haver and Guy Weizman ("Director of the Year" in the Netherlands 2018) have previously danced with Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company. Today, they run their dance company Club Guy & Roni, from which several of their dancers have been selected to participate in this performance with our company.
Commissioned music by Slagwerk den Haag and the Asko/Schönberg ensemble, who participate on stage. Love is a co-production with Club Guy & Roni, Slagwerk Den Haag and the Asko/Schönberg ensemble.
