Marijke De Roover

Live, Laugh, Limerence An opera buffa in four acts

In a captivating and ironic performance that flirts with opera, Marijke De Roover’s questions our stereotypical conception of love. She focuses on expressions of popular culture such as pop songs, karaoke, musicals theatre, Disney and rom coms – and the ways in which they depict and musicalize love. In De Roover’s universe, love does not conform to social and cultural norms and expectations, but rather manifests itself in many different ways. Dominate conceptions of gender, motherhood, sexual identity and procreation are dealt with in quick succession, and each is deconstructed using quotations from musicals, opera and film.
