A Sonnet In Your Pocket: Limerence and Rhyme
A physical, musical, and emotional romp through a modicum of Shakespeares glorious poems. This devised theatre piece is an exploration of the ideas and impulses that shape and shift relationships. Introducing design with a touch of the surreal to situations that are strikingly familiar, we play with language, play with relationships, and play for its own sakeall in the name of love. I love a good roller coaster. Its not without tension, the anticipation is half the thrill, and even at its most dangerous we trust well survive it, refreshed by the experience. Occasionally you escape bruised by it and more cautious, but still curious. These poems traverse a similar emotional landscape. Enjoy the various scenarios, both realistic and ridiculous, as they unfold, without a discernible plotline. We hope weve made something refreshing, accessible and as enjoyable to witness as it was to create. Weve considered inner experience versus outer expression and what gets lost in translation. If two people hold love to opposing ideals, they inherently speak different languages of love. We explore the ways language can be a bridge and an obstacle. Iambic pentameter, stage craft, music, physical gesture, choreography, English, Wolof, Mandarin, Swahili, and Thai are some of the components of this language odyssey. Enjoy the ride. Try not to take it too seriously. Its only love, after all.
