Love will tear us apart, first part of the trilogy (Love will tear us apart / Boys don’t cry / the_beatles) dedicated to special relations between dance and popular music, is a solo which fuses several genres and is somewhere between a rock concert, confession and abstract dance.
Love in the title relates to love for dance, the act of dance itself. Performer executes dance numbers, chosen post-punk and love songs, while in the intermission we 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.
Love will tear us apart is one of the most performed Croatian dance performances for which the performer Petra Hrašćanec received the Croatian Actors Society Award in 2012. Due to her pregnancy, in 2014 the young dancer Luka Švajda is performing as her substitute.
Love will tear us apart premiered in 2011 at Dance Week Festival where in 2012 the second part of the Trilogy, Boys don’t cry, also had its premiere performance.
