AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A contemporary performance of profound lightness, humour and exquisite detail that explores the complexities of human affection. With conversation, song and live harpsichord music, Affection gently searches the connections between three performers and their audience. Freely traversing the abstract and the ordinary Affection looks at the way people empathise and nurture, reject, help and play with each other. Featuring the music of Francois Couperin (1668-1733), Brian Wilson, The Ramones and the harpsichord of Anastasia Russel-Head.'
