Gunilla Heilborn, Sweden
This is Not a Love Story | Project Arts Centre (Space Upstairs) 
Oct 13-14 2016

This is Not a Love Story is a tale of two reluctant heroes – Kowalski and Vera.
At least those are their names in one of the scenes. With a disarming simplicity, they switch between dance and  scattered questioning: Who did what? When? Where? And  why? Is there any specific period in the history that I should  focus on? Have you ever worked in the fishing industry?
A delicate search for context and connections, which always seem to be slightly beyond our reach, the journey becomes not about the destination, but the transformation and reflection along the way. The journey keeps starting over. Again and again as in a choreographic road movie.
Gunilla Heilborns’ unique approach to combining text, movement, video and imagery, always spiced with dry  humour and filmic timing, has established her reputation as one of Sweden's most interesting performance and film artists.
Contains strobe lighting.
