Love will tear us apart is a solo created for performer Petra Hrašćanec. The work itself fuses several genres and is somewhere between a rock concert, confession and abstract dance. The question of ownership over the performance at first was positioned within an abstract dance frame dealing only with the body and the politics of observation, extremely expanding into a broader arts and social context. Love in the title relates to love for dance, the act of dance itself, while the work debates the difference between dance and its realization as a social event through the constitution and definition of the performer herself. Performer Petra Hraščanec executes dance numbers, chosen love songs, while in the intermission we are to learn about seemingly ephemeral details about the origins of this production, weaving a fine net of relationships between powers which define the act of performance. The audience is invited to actively take on the responsibility about the sequences in the hierarchy of the act of performing.
