A Lover’s Discourse

May 31 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

- £5 – £20

In love, as in music, we find ourselves in a multitude of hazy, transcendental states, neither here nor there. ‘We are enchanted, bewitched: we are in the realm of sleep, without sleeping; we are within the voluptuous infantilism of sleepiness: this is the moment for telling stories.’ So says Roland Barthes in his sweeping and ecstatic examination of human love, A Lover’s Discourse. Join us for a unique and transformative experience, as we pair Barthes’ vivid recitations with madrigals by Monteverdi, Gesualdo and Marenzio, a specially commissioned film by Arms & Legs, and Pippa Murphy’s evocative new score.
