“Each new love is hope”, Nina Cassian used to say. “I’ve known both fortunate and unfortunate love. Some left me, abandoned or betrayed me. Or, after loving me, they said, ‘you are awesome; FAREWELL’… and they left. Passion is devastating. Love is wonderful, but passion is very dangerous. What is happiness? What is happiness made of? Who earned happiness? You may have it and not be aware of it. It is complicated. I was happy. I know for sure that I have drunk that enchanted liquor”, said the poet.

The aim of the performance is to call things by their names, to call love by its name, to call betrayal, dreams and LIFE by their names. They all come together to shape the image of the one meant to watch on our lives, which is LOVE.
