Love is a complicated thing. This four-letter word maybe small, but its meaning and interpretation is great. There’s first love, true love, erotic love, forbidden love, self love, unconditional love, tough love, enduring love, everlasting love, love for music, love for cars, love for cheesecake, the language of love…like I said, it’s a complicated thing. Love marks – The Glendavar Street session explores a love that has a myriad of loves all wrapped up in one. A push/pull kind of love that has excitement sitting right alongside anger and balancing unpredictably on top of joy. The performance recording and carbon transfer captured as a result of this love are raw, honest and at times a little spooky, but give the viewer an alternative reading of the traditional interpretation of love.
