Enter a vintage caravan and join artist Marie Klimis for a cup of tea and a love story.
Whether you’re 15 or 50, love stories inspire us all. A Love Letter, focusses on and celebrates love after 50, while the media, advertising and film industries overload us with images of young love. You will get to explore intimate stories from real people that give insights into the ups and downs of romantic relationships at a later stage in life. Through a series of miniature diorama boxes and sound installations, A Love Letter brings to life the voices of the North Kensington’s community and invites you to share their stories and thoughts about love – past, present and future.
A Love Letter contains 10 visual and audio installations, with each individual soundtrack lasting 5 to 10 minutes. Audience members are welcome to listen to as many installations as they wish (total listening time is about 60 minutes). However, at busy times, time in the installation will be limited to 20 minutes per person. Admission is on a first come first served basis, but people with special access needs can book a time slot by contacting Marie Klimis on firstname.lastname@example.org. All soundtracks will also be available on www.marieklimis.com/love
“A stunning piece of work, sensitive in its delivery, and full of the kind of magic that hides in plain sight.” A Younger Theatre, about The Paper Traveller
