Amor, Kærlighed, Liebe, Love

a techno musical

Bride-to-be finds her relationship with the man of her dreams falling apart as the initial infatuation of their love is fading. How can they save the relationship and reignite the flame? Could the answer be the wedding she always dreamed of?

AKLL is a deconstructed rom-com, a “techno musical”, that dissects the Western notion of “true love” from within; blending guilty pleasures with critical thought, cringe with catharsis and alienation with raw emotion. Through the mantra nothing is universal, the performance invites the audience on a journey in a world of projection mapping, augmented reality, intimidating intimacy, deconstructed clichés, divorced body parts, heartfelt electronic music and love tirades. 

CuntsCollective delves into the Euro-centric and American-influenced heteronormaitive ideals of love, unraveling the social norms, gender roles, structures and hierarchies, perpetuated by popular culture with equal measures of compassion and auto-irony.

A trio between two dancers and technology.

 

Premiere 26th January 2022 at Bora Bora (Aarhus, DK)

Light, tech and media

We aim to create a dynamic and sensitive interaction between the performers and the digital and technological co-players.

 

Naia Burucoa and Imre Mark Petkov have created the primary vision for the technological element of the project, which includes computer-vision, face and motion tracking - combined with projection- mapping and real time visuals.

3D animations by Imre Petkov

Imre Mark Petkov has animated 3D scans of the two performers into a series of abstract scenarios that wil be projected live on stage. 

 
Cinematography by Naia Burucoa

Light designer and photographer Naia Burucoa has made cinematographic content for live-projection.

She will perform live-visuals including light improvisation, realtime video projection combined with prerecorded video content. 
 

Her light design creates dynamic and moving visual expressions, always fluctuating and in movement as she is an improvising co-player live.

Electronic music and sound design
by zack christ

TECHNO MUSICAL
Electronic musician Jakob Einar la Cour (zack christ) creates a sonic universe around the classic structures of popular music only to disassemble it all right before the climax (💦). He plays around with (guilty) pleasures and folds pop instrumentals, infused with R&B, noise and club music, onto themselves in one big orchestrated chaos. Meanwhile, the two performers sing synthetic love tirades.
