A signal that travels down through your heart, is a kinetic eulogy to romantic love, where stereotypical narratives about being-in-love fall short.
From the shocking statement of Sophocles’s Antigone about the invincibleness of love to the unanswered question of Danae Stratigopoulou in her song titled “what is that which we call love”; from the dialogue between Socrates and Phaedrus to the heartbreaking interpretation of Whitney Houston in “I will always love you,” we understand this: love is triggered by encounter, unfolds according to the way that lovers perceive the world, and remains a matter of two.
But what happens when the sensory environment, as a key point of reference, is deconstructed and love is described simultaneously not by two, but by three female bodies?
