What is it?
Chinese visual artist and theatre director Zi Ling directs this bold collaboration between visual artists, actors, musicians and designers; exploring love and all its dilemmas in a surreal and heightened world.
Inspired Francis Bacon’s absurdist and visceral paintings, Ling draws out the dark emotions in Bacon’s work in eleven scenes of intimate love, distorted desires, jealousy and violent passions. Rooted in a minimalist set by award-winning Wang Jing and with costume by fashion designer Tong Zhao, the physical theatre is accompanied by two musicians creating an uneasy soundscape.
Zi Ling is a visual artist and theatre director who has established herself as a painter, as well as creating numerous short films and visual installations. Normal Love is her London debut.
The Eldarin Yeong Studio is a cross-art forms producing company whose work includes dance, drama, musical and opera. They aim to produce provoking, radical, contradictory and entertaining work; and create international collaborations, building a platform for both British and foreign artists to present their work to a more diverse audience.
