L.O.V.E

October 30th-31st

Sherman Cymru, Cardiff

An immoderate Shakespearean ménage à trois, with a touch of Shirley Bassey. It’s about passion, spirit, beauty, jealousy, manipulation, lust.

Three lovers, recalling the poet, the ‘dark lady’ and the ‘lovely boy’, perform the Sonnets, bringing to the texts a vigour, a passion, a tenderness and a desperation to match the extraordinary range and depth of emotion lurking not far below the surface of their elegant verse.

Volcano grapples with one of the greatest collections of classical poetry in English, sweeping aside the dusty academic appreciation that turns thousands of children off poetry for life, in favour of a red-blooded entanglement with texts that are alive with possibility.

L.O.V.E. is a theatrical landmark – a highly-charged and athletic classic that helped define the term ‘physical theatre’. Bringing together Volcano’s Paul Davies and Fern Smith with DV8’s Nigel Charnock and the bold, sumptuous design of Andrew Jones.
