In the spot light, a masculine body performs. By doing so, it encapsulates a plethora of life experiences, memories, lovers, regrets, mourning, and the loss of time. It is a body full of contradictions, disappointments, injuries and scars.

In love & loneliness in the 21 century the protagonist will use surrealistic comments on his own complex reality, in order to induce heavy moments with ridiculous-meaningful moments. With naked truth, the performer honestly peels layer after layer of his emotional-physical lack of welfare unfolds.Choreographic and textual narratives, displaying the complexity of aging and reflected through the individual(the microcosm) onto the society we live in (the macrocosm), a society that hasn’t stopped worshipping youth since the times of classical Greece. 

With authenticity and original music, “love & loneliness in the 21 century” presents a sincere one man show.
