“But nothing is so strange when one is in love (...) as the complete indifference of other people.”
Virginia Woolf, Mrs.Dalloway
A lack of love threatens and divides our world. What is the cause of this dysfunction? And what do we have against it? Heart Emoji invites us to deal with these and similar questions and to look into our deepest inner being.
6 dancers bring head and heart, mind and feelings together on stage. In the form of contemporary dance theater, they create their very own view of the world and share it with us, therefore the dream of acting based on real affection goes beyond intellect and reason.
Far away from Hollywood, Heart Emoji reflects on the facets of love and its language that seems to have been forgotten.
