LIEBE | LOVE

TOASPERN|MOELLER (LEIPZIG/COPENHAGEN)

Can one make themselves vulnerable in romantic relationships without being hurt in return? In their duet LIEBE | LOVE toaspern|moeller explore the various states of vulnerability that are prerequisites for intimate relationships and being in love.

When does infatuation turn into delusion, and when does the desire for physical closeness become obsession? How does projection become reality, and when does the allure of the other's unattainability become a source of self-destruction?

In the LOFFT co-production LIEBE | LOVE toaspern|moeller explore the many states of infatuation, from delusional harmony to desperate dissonance. Diary entries by Nobel Prize-winning author Annie Ernaux merge with choreography and song to create a virtuosic performance that examines desire born from distance: from the touching to heterosexual clichés, to the comedic and cringe-worthy. For the first time together on stage, dancer and choreographer Alma Toaspern and singer and composer Mathias Monrad Møller sing and dance through the poetic stage design by renowned Danish artist Christian Friedländer. In the duo's typical combination of dance and music, LIEBE | LOVE sheds light on the tension between reciprocated feelings and the allure of the other's uniqueness.

 

From 16 years.

On Thursday, July 4th, prior to the performance, starting at 5:30 PM, the event ÜBUNGSLABOR: INTIMITÄT, NÄHE, DISTANZ UND KONSENS will take place.
