Tine Van Aerschot

het betreft liefde

In residency from 9 until 23 july 2018

het betreft liefde is a performance about love. It is a performance that shows love and breathes love. It tells the story of love then and now. The love of the child, the adult, and the old person. It is about the history and development of love. It is about the love between the three actresses. It is about romantic love and the love of one's people. It is about love for the infinite beauty of the world around us. In a series of love declarations, three women explore their love and try to share it with each other and the audience.

In Ostend, Tine Van Aerschot has been looking for all kinds of stories about love. She organized workshops with children and adults, excavated into the history and literature and assimilated also her own memories and emotions in order to give form to het betreft liefde.

Tine Van Aerschot (1961) has been developing herself from graphic designer to dramaturg, writer and theater maker. In 2006, she debuted as script writer and theater director with I have no thoughts, and this is one of them. She makes intimate and intensive plays with inventive means. The great strength of her pieces lies in the precise texts and the interpretation of these texts by the actors.
