L – Do I need Labels to Love?

The capital L of love describes a state that makes labels and attributes we use to categorise our environment lose their meaning. Barriers dissolve; I becomes We. We connect, open up and start to relate to one another.

The more we connect, the more we un-label. The more we un-label the more we connect…

During the moving dance theatre performance L – Do I need labels to love, 16 international artists with and without disabilities go looking for love. Combining dance, theatre, music, poetry, acrobatics and video projections, they take the audience on an emotional journey that leads them to themselves and one another. Together they set out to answer the question: Do I need labels to love?

Accessibility: Every performance will be audio-described and captioned for the visually impaired and deaf.
