BABY Arne De Tremerie & Eleonore Van Godtsenhoven

TICKETS

Baby
In 'BABY', two characters lead you into the huge construction we call love. How sullied – or unsullied – is our idea of love by the stream of mainstream images? And can we extract the images we have of love from the clichés that surround them?

general info

DUTCH spoken

'Love must be reinvented'. With this assertation, Eleonore Van Godtsenhoven and Arne De Tremerie withdrew into a world of iconic film images, absurd dating formats, broken relationships, philosophical reflections, algorithmic coincidences, implausible clichés and grotesque gestures.

Are we still blinded by Hollywood romance? Or has love become a desire for desire itself? An illusion that the market cleverly manipulates? And who decides what the norm is? In BABY,  two characters investigate. They position the audience around the arena to dissect the construction we call love together and go in search of an alternative. 

‘Love must be reinvented’  is an assertion by the cultural philosopher Alain Badiou from his book In Praise of Love. In that book, he claims that love is in danger because it has been stripped of all coincidence. It is becoming predictable, and so it can be sold as a product in apps and on dating platforms. Badiou calls upon humanity to resist.
