Without saying a word, the artists from the Marie de Jongh company speak to us of love and the passage of time. A venture into a poetic theatre of physical expression and emotion.
They first open the doors to childhood. Dressed in childish white dresses or short trousers, these funny characters explore all facets of their inexperience: casually imitating adults with aplomb, daring to love without really knowing what it means. Then, sixty years have passed. Their hair has gone white. They have learned the meaning of the verb ‘to love’. However, what they have not yet realised it that whatever life has in store for us, love will always give us a chance.
Bedecked in masks and wigs, the actors in Love transcribe the colours of existence through their art, making full use of body language and expression. Here, the theatre becomes a place for wordless encounters where the whole family can share laughter and emotion, doubts and certainties. An ode to curiosity and accepting people’s differences, this play from Spanish company Marie de Jongh spreads before us a world of intense poetry in all its subtleties. Adults or children, it goes straight to our hearts.
