Α few words about the play
What is love? How do we experience love? Does everybody have access to it? Third part of the trilogy “The Other Normal”, born out of En Dynamei Ensemble, a collective of young artists with or without disabilities and their need to openly share their personal stories and explore universal aspects of human individuality, “Horse in Love / The Absurdity of Love”, directed by Eleni Efthymiou, is a performance about love, this special form of ‘disability’ which holds power over people, torpedoes them, electrifies them, drives them mad, sets them ablaze. A performance celebrating spontaneous vitality, sexual impulses, all the senses which have been numbed by a strictly rational perspective on life. A performance breaking through social barriers and hurdles in order to address the absurd, instincts, the forbidden, the imagination, the soul, persevering on the quest for an ultimate and mutual love.
