The one who loves you
The one who loves you hits you. The one who hits you loves you. The one who loves you hurts you.
This is a piece about relationships, unfortunately.
(We can’t get away from them.)
One woman, one chair, one microphone. And a chair opposite her, for you.
In an intimate conversation, she lays her cards on the table: talk to her, and she might (really) slap you.
Playing on the anticipation of what happens when a theatre audience talks back, this piece threads together live audience encounters with funny and frightening stories of loneliness, domestic violence, authority, gender, and sensuality.
This is an encounter rather than a spectacle. Seated in the round, the audience is a group witness. The performer waits, for you. You are invited to a series of intimate one-to-one conversations in playfulness, dancing, sadness, silence… and a collective journey to confront fear, violence, love and a moment of real human connection.
