“True love
You're the one I'm dreaming of
Your heart fits me like a glove
And I'm gonna be true blue, baby, I love you
'Cause it's
True...”
Madonna, 1986

“True Blue” explores the frustrations that arise from intimate relationships and our thirst for connection. Could we claim that from Plato’s pre- modern philosophical quest of Eros in
Symposium to dating apps’ algorithmic “magic” of late capitalism, the search of the sublime object of love is a transhistorical phenomenon? Why do we anticipate from ephemeral encounters with strangers the promise to find something we lack? Two dancers and two musicians are trying to discover an artistic vocabulary to narrate the very common story of our illusion of oneness with the beloved in a "world that strives to remain a great enchanted garden". Choreography is inspired from a circular Greek folk dance in 12 steps and the performance includes a Greek traditional song, sung in the style of Greek traditional lamentations - moirologi.
