When Love Walked In

《当爱降临》When Love Walked In


The gap between the way love is presented in culture and the way it is experienced by individuals is the basis and inspiration for Berg and Graf’s dance-musical-performance When Love Walked In

The work is constructed as a series of short stories connected by a body that is in search of intimacy. Three people oscillate between personal nostalgia and collective memory, sing and dance to fill the gap between their inner world and the one outside. The past wanders around the space like a ghost, putting on and taking of the shape of songs that haunt you, and of bodies whose tangible memory has been imprinted on you.

In this piece, the choreographers continue to explore the essence of what it means to be human – to love, to get excited, to fail, to dream, to long for something, to belong and to be estranged. They would like to surface that which is evasive and undefined, and whose edges only art can touch.
