L.O.V.E. confronts the viewer with the question; do we still believe in real love or do we confuse love with the images and clichés that we are bombarded with in popular culture. Cecilia Moisio uses movement and text to explore the influence of images of love and how they affect our experience of it. The light design juxtaposed extremes of these images, building with the piece to a dynamic climax of ecstasy and desolation. Light was also used to show narrative developments and re-contextualise the choreography, which made use of the continued repetition of movements derived from films and images of love.
