A Sonnet In Your Pocket: Limerence and Rhyme
A physical, musical, and emotional romp through a modicum of Shakespeare's glorious poems. This devised theatre piece is an exploration of the ideas and impulses that shape and shift relationships. Introducing design with a touch of the surreal to situations that are strikingly familiar, we play with language, play with relationships, and play for its own sake, all in the name of love.

I love a good roller coaster. It's not without tension, the anticipation is half the thrill, and even at its most dangerous we trust we'll survive it, invigorated by the experience. Occasionally you escape bruised by it and more cautious, but still curious. These poems traverse a similar emotional landscape. Enjoy the various scenarios, both realistic and ridiculous, as they unfold, without a discernible plotline. We hope we've made something refreshing, accessible, and as enjoyable to witness as it was to create.

We've considered inner experience versus outer expression and what gets lost in translation. If two people hold love to opposing ideals, they inherently speak different languages of love. We explore the ways language can be a bridge and an obstacle. Iambic pentameter, stagecraft, music, physical gesture, choreography, English, Wolof, Mandarin, Swahili, and Thai are some of the components of this language odyssey.  
Enjoy the ride. Try not to take it too seriously. It's only love, after all.

Please note that this show expresses strong emotional themes, which may be upsetting to younger children.
