The "love" here is part satire, part sorrow, part celebration. Engaging in superficial social exchanges and a kind of two dimensional "showtime," the performers traverse a behavioral landscape that oscillates between polite gesture, narcissistic preening and quiet contemplation hoping to discover along the way a deeper, richer experience.
