"The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, not twist them to fit our own image.Otherwise, we love only the reflection of ourselves that we see in them".
Human Interpersonal relationships are vital for our survival, so why are we so s*** at getting them right?? The creation of this performance work involved two strangers agreeing to participate in a social experiment; 'The 36 questions that can make you fall in love with anyone'. Love & Spaghetti has explored the complexity, vulnerability and simplicity of human relationship. referring to the scientific structure of falling in love and how these definitions have changed over a period of three generations.
Two women perform their experiences as they fall apart and come together. this is the beautiful and terrifying thing about relationship, we must be willing to completely reveal layers of ourselves in order in order to reach an authentic, tangible connection with another soul.
"We actually have a lot in common with each other. Am I more able to open up and share deeper things about myself? Or maybe it's the opposite, and we actually feel closer to the people we know absolutely nothing about. I am still curious, I still have questions."
