An NCPA production in association with Aasakta Kalamanch.
How do we look at ourselves and others, how do we make connections, and how do we love? These are some of the questions that are thrown up by Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information, that challenges traditional theatrical norms with its unconventional structure. Comprising over fifty scenes in seven sections, the play follows a non- linear narrative and is devoid of central characters, emphasizing the cumulative impact of diverse, brief scenes ranging from seconds to minutes.
The vignettes mirror the rapid pace of channel-hopping or scrolling through social media, highlighting potential implications for relationships in an era dominated by instant gratification and short attention spans. The play’s kaleidoscopic structure, touches on an array of themes such as memory atrophy, privacy erosion, an alienation from the self and the decay of genuine emotion. Through its experimental form and astute observations, written in 2012, “Love and Information” the play speaks directly to the way we make meaning of our lives and existence when there is an over-exposure and saturation of different kinds of information
