Joyous. Sexy. Heartbreaking. Take a dizzying ride through love’s collision course.
The sold-out surprise hit of Brisbane Festival 2014, which returned to the Wonderland Festival at Brisbane Powerhouse in 2015, is ready to tour and set to raise the pulse and pluck the heartstrings of audiences around Australia.
Based on 800 anonymous love stories submitted by you, your friends and your exes, I Want To Know What Love Is throws a spotlight on long-buried memories, bedroom fantasies, crushes and conquests as secret confessions are transformed into magnificent declarations centre stage. This is for everyone who’s ever loved. Anyone who’s ever hurt. This is for you.
This is a wonderfully original, hugely entertaining and highly physical performance from one of Brisbane's most exciting contemporary performance companies, The Good Room. The performance incorporates story, movement, song and is wildly surprising, at times moving, and enormously fun. See why audiences have been raving about I Want To Know What Love Is for yourself!
"Around the world, people love. They sing for love, they dance for love, they compose poems and stories about love. They tell myths and legends about love. They pine for love, they live for love, they kill for love, and they die for love. Anthropologists have found evidence of romantic love in 170 societies. They’ve never found a society that did not have it." Helen Fisher, The Brain In Love
