The Speech of Aristophanes

Inspired by the Speech of Aristophane's from Plato's Symposium, this dance showcase tells the origin story of humankind's pursuit of love and attempts to answer age-old questions; what is love? why do we love? what is our purpose in love?

"And so, when a person meets the half that is their very own, whatever their orientation, something wonderful happens: the two struck from their senses by love, by a sense of belonging to one another, and by desire, and they don't want to be separated from one another, not even for a moment...

love is the name of our pursuit of wholeness, for our desire to be complete."
