Flight Number Love
We, here at the Necessary I.T.E.M.S. project, wanted to get right to the bottom of things. All shows that we see have something to do with Love, right? One way or another... And we decided to figure it out - What does this loaded word "LOVE" mean for us? We didn't want to just make another show about Love - how original would that be? We wanted to understand what does this ephemeral feeling, condition, way of being, whatever you name it, meant. Okay, truth be told, we wanted to make a show about Love; but we wanted to make a show about OUR LOVE.
So, we sat down with the actors and asked them to tell their stories in answer to the question: what was love to them? We asked them to only share stories they are comfortable with. The stories they've shared were amazing. We didn't expect such sincerity, openness and truthfulness when we ventured to take on this project. The stories were very different - they were full of pain, irony, laughter, but underneath it all, was this everlasting, omnipresent feeling; a feeling that is stronger that we are; one that stays even when we go.
The stories you will hear today are 100% authentic. You will hear who we loved and who loved us or didn't. But nevertheless.. All of us here at the Necessary ITEMS project learned so much from this work. We've learned about ourselves and each other. We've discovered that deep inside people are a lot better than what we think of them at first glance. Since as soon as we are touched by this enormous feeling, a feeling that is greater than we are, we become a part of it. And as soon as we are a part of LOVE, we become Divine.
We want to encourage you to watch our play, but more importantly, we want to encourage you to LOVE. And you are probably doing it already, as you read this.
So,come take the flight with us! Our pilot will deliver you right to Cloud Number 9 among other destinations, our flight attendants will serve you raw stories about love seasoned with laughter, tears and lots of turbulence. So, buckle up!
