For the Love Of... is a constellation of three absurd dance plays.
It’s a mash-up of classical text, contemporary movement and pop culture. It’s about dead guys like Chekhov and Kafka and Shakespeare. It’s about a bookcase. It’s about being a beefcake. It’s about wanting too much stuff. It’s dance, but it’s not dance.
It’s choreographed emotion.
