Is it possible to love forever? To dedicate yourself to someone forever, to indulge forever, to take someone forever? Would it be okay for you to be together forever?
The stage team consists of people born in the ’90s, whose childhood took place in a whole other kind of time, that was embodied by Meg Ryans, who always died in the end of every romantical comedy and by Nicholas Cage’s who stole cars for love and where it was more than clear that the poor character would definitely get rich and find their true love by episode 232. We feel that our adult lives differ from that time significantly and that’s why we would like to ask how has love and loving and being loved changed now when relationships have turned into moments on Tinder and where there are often more kilometers between lovers than kisses.
Barbara Lehtna’s new piece untangles the phrase “together forever” coined by pop-culture and researches how much truth is there to the concept that we familiarized ourselves within our childhoods, but that turned into an overwhelming dream in our teenage years to change into something that doesn’t feel that possible anymore.
