Lovefool is a one-woman play about Grace, a young woman hungry for affection and looking for love in the wrong places, who is forced to discover what healthy (self-) love might look like.

In her riveting play, the Luxembourgish author Gintare Parulyte explores with vulnerability and humor the effects of toxic masculinity and inequality, as well as those of life governed by gender expectations that are too confusing to fathom, let alone to enjoy. It’s about emotionally absent fathers, co-dependent mothers, and what unresolved traumas do to our ability to love and receive love as adults. But it’s also about hope for a better world and the power of (self-) awareness —the tools to heal and be able to lead a life filled with true love, self-respect, and purpose. Lovefool is heartbreaking and hilarious at the same time.

Location: Theatre National du Luxembourg (196 route de Longwy,, Luxembourg-Merl, L-1940)

The Censor

Kinneksbond presents 

                 The Censor 

Tickets: Adults: €22.50; Students: €8

A female pornographer comes face to face with a censor – the man whose job is to determine whether her work can see the light of day. She needs to convince him to see beyond the graphic images if it’s ever going to stand a chance of being released.

But the war she’s fighting is about far more than just a movie. She dreams of a day when films like hers can be shown in every multiplex in the land, to every man, woman, and child. When that day comes, there’ll be no more repression, no more witch-hunts.

This production is directed by Anne Simon.  In Simon’s interpretation, the porn film, and the censoring thereof, stand in for the mechanisms at work to silence women – or any other minorityThe Censor becomes a parable for those century-old systems and narratives that maintain the Western patriarchal power structures in place. Rather than trying to reproduce the controversy the play sparked when first staged in 1997 over the now possibly less shocking explicitness of some scenes, Simon explores gender roles themselves and confronts the audience with how far their own gender biases and tropes influence the reading of a situation.

Location: Kinneksbond, Centre Culturel, Mamer (42 Route D Arlon, Mamer, L-8210)
