How do we fall in and out of love? This luminous new work offers a provocative, evocative look at love in all its aspects and guises through music, movement, and art. Inspired by Roland Barthes’ A Lover’s Discourse and featuring music of Bach, Ravel, Jörg Widmann, and others, five extraordinary artists—violinist, cellist, choreographer, dancer, and sculptor (renowned artist and stage designer Alexander Polzin)—deliver a sensuous and powerful work that will change the way you think about love.
