A dance strive for empowerment
“Let's imagine a world where there is only one ideal to follow, one value, one truth.
What if this truth is love?”
Dictatorship of love is a contest of lovability and endurance, where love is an order, an imposition, something both wanted and feared. It is a game, in which female participants both try to remain a part of the collective, yet allure "the leader".
Is the performance empowering or oppressive? Do the participants love or fear the leader?
A group of three dancers and ten local women take you on a journey through this oppressively lovable game.
