I know you
I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you
I know what you'll do
You'll love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream
La, la, la.
(Sleeping Beauty, written by Sammy Fain and Jack Lawrence)
Market of Love invites you to examine the ways love is being choreographed and the processes that lie behind this social choreography. Departing from two points – the effect of mass media on the perception and purpose of love and its operation in the matchmaking world, the performance is questioning how love operates in today’s life economy. What are the processes through which emotions are made a commodity, and what is the logic that predetermines the way we relate, and that to certain extent choreographs our behaviour?
Lady Tremaine: What on earth have you've been doing?
Cinderella: Dreaming, that's all.
Lady Tremaine: Well, then wake up.
(Cinderella by Walt Disney)
