A performance that pays tribute to the thousands of immigrants who have lost their lives in the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean is our “Mother Sea”, the cradle of many civilizations which has been repeatedly praised by poets, politicians and citizens. Sadly enough, over the past few decades it has been transformed into a cemetery of people and their cultures. Loveland is a performance based on audience interaction, delineating an area where everyone can coexist together; a virtual place where love is present and things seem to be fine at the beginning, but everything is overturned in the end.
