Dragana Bulut

Beyond Love


Recommended for age 16 and older
English /  approx. 120 mins.

What is the future of love? In her new HAU co-production, Dragana Bulut explores the commodification of love. Together with the companion robot Harmony, the two performers host the audience in a choreographic speed dating performance for a world in a crisis of intimacy. Alternating between dating and performative scenarios, they explore the dilemmas of connection: How do dating platforms, relationships mediated by algorithms, and love robots change the way we fall in love? If love needs reciprocity, can technology provide it? Or what might we scavenge from its failures? “Beyond Love” is the third part in Dragana Bulut’s trilogy probing the way the emotional spheres are choreographed by the forces of market commodification and technology. After “Happyology” (2018) and “Behind Fear” (2022), this current part deals with love.
