ROMANCE, 2018
By Jules Fischer

Performance, 20 min.

Performed by:

Sebastian Kahr Rasmussen


We are suspended between the hope of an encounter, the need for intimacy, the excitement of the novelty, the violence of letting go and the anxiety of being known. Somewhere on a dance floor, in an apartment that is not yours, on the streets, in the movies and all the love songs. This performance is about romance, it is about romanticism, it is about being both the imitation and the imitated. It is a about being damaged. Being the one who contaminates. Being pure. Pollution.
