Love in Times of Ikea is a comedy solo circus-theatre multimedia piece, combining vertical dance and video projections.
The performance takes place on a climbing wall that is used as a screen, where an acrobatic dance is synchronized to the movements of two virtual “clones”. The show questions, throughout a comical stand-up monologue and the interaction of movement with projections, the need for a collective identity, with Ikea as our common denominator.
