Amor Fou

Love is one of the highest values in Surrealism. André Bretón and Paul Eward concieved it as, above all, “mad love”. Love is, then, poetry; both share the same nature and both drink from the same source since the source of eroticism is also from where poetry flows. This concept is nothing less than revolutionary.

André Bretón’s concept of “mad love” is developed here on stage, springing from both fiction and reality. The reality is that in which two people have met in the theatre of a cinema and from their unconscious selves begin the work of constructing their own Amor fou.

Where does the line between reality and desire exist? Where are the limits that divide reality and imagination? Where is the line between reality and fiction? Where is the line between what is real and what is unreachable? Would you be able to say which has been the most important meeting in your life?
