Set your reminder for the YouTube premiere:
Where do your eyes look when encountering a homeless person? What moves inside you?
When Love Fails emerges from the choreographer’s intimate feeling of despair when seeing people sleeping rough, wanting to help and not knowing how. The piece is a provocation to look into the image of the homeless person and question how we relate to it, who should take responsibility for that human suffering, who is failing to love them? The theatrical event creates a moment for the gaze to rest with no shame on a fictional image of the homeless. The piece invites us to feel first, then question.
