About the Show

Dive deep into the enigmatic essence of love’s in-between spaces with Amor, a newly devised physical theatre spectacle brought to life by D.I.V.E. Theatre Collective.

Amor explores love’s subtle nuances. Within a mesmerising visual and sound landscape, our multicultural ensemble takes its place at the crossroads of love and its polar opposites. Love meets anger, compassion faces indifference, and courage dances with fear—these extremes converge in a captivating display that’s as thought-provoking as it is emotionally stirring.

Every person holds a love story, and Amor leads the audience on a journey into their own narrative. It incites reflection on what separates one from others and what binds us all together in the collective story of humanity.

This production shatters traditional boundaries with D.I.V.E’s unique blend of movement, visual poetry, and compelling narratives. In a non-conventional theatre setting without stages or seats, the spectators are invited to stand alongside the performers, embarking on a truly visceral and emotional experience.

As we challenge conventions and approach love from diverse angles, Amor beckons the audience to explore the depths of love’s in-betweenness, asking: What do you love? How do you love? Do you really love? Is love what you feel or what you are told to feel? What is your journey, and is it ever too late to rediscover the enchantment of love again?
