The title Cry Love refers to a scene from Bacon, the last performance by Nanine Linning for which she drew her inspiration from the work of the painter Francis Bacon. It concerned a duet in which she showed the polarity of love and its ending, which are very close to each other and yet do not touch. It was this duet that prompted the new performance.
Cry Love is about the person whose body is driven by instinct, moods and emotions.
Cry Love is about the person who has love. And dies once again.
Cry Love is presented as a total experience. An extraordinary and energetic marriage of different disciplines – video of Erik Lint/ Roger Muskee, music of Jacob ter Veldhuis in a installation designed by Linning herself. A dynamic, concentrated spectacle is created in which the survival mechanisms and human interactions are portrayed.
