Love in Fragments

Finding Love

Love in Fragments illuminates eight varieties of love – such as banal, romantic, obsessive or narcissistic – with the spotlights of music, dance and sculpture, offering timeless works by Bach alongside new compositions by Jörg Widmann, inspired by Roland Barthes’ classic book, A Lover’s Discourse, as well as current neurological and sociological research.

  • Inspired by Roland Barthes’ cult essay Fragments d’un discours amoureux
  • A collaboration between sculptor Alexander Polzin, choreographer Sommer Ulrickson, cellist Alban Gerhardt and violinist Gergana Gergova
