Love and Information Performance

December 1, 2014

On 27 and 28 November, Paulinas in the V to VIII staged Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information, a powerful and potent post-dramatic play that explores the impact that scientific and technological advances have on modern relationships. Churchill’s rather unconventional format sees over 60 scenes set in diverse locations including a bedroom, laboratory, park, living room, and hospital, and allowed for the 52 cast members to adopt multiple characters throughout the play. The theme of society’s continuous exposure to a virtual dimension was reinforced by the three massive screens encircling the stage projecting snippets from music videos, adverts and movies. Taken together, the scenes were very much connected, and the play left the audience wondering whether science really is developing faster than humanity.
