Love In Space-time is built on the premise that it’s during our experiences of love and loss and grief that a doorway into the 4th dimension opens up for us, and what happens if we walk through it.
The story traces one woman's passage through the love and loss of two men – her father and her lover.
In Love In Space-time scenes overlap, repeat, layer upon one another, and time and space are fluid.
Love In Space-Time is a story about what lies on the other side of grief. It is a journey of hope, humor, and transcendence.
LOVE IN SPACE-TIME is a multi-media movement-based performance project, for four OTOA trained performers with movement experience, which we envision with a video and sound installation.
We envision this project as a hybrid of theater & dance within the idiom of poetic-realism.
The Script is written by Gia Forakis.
