…a one night stand of performance, sound, screening and installation art, 9:30pm to 11:30pm, Valentine’s night, Friday 14 February • Love it or hate it, celebrate an alternative Valentine’s day at Lovestock
Presented by The Market Studios performance art initiative, Livestock, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios’ Atrium space hosts Lovestock; a one night stand of performance art, interactive installations, sound, screenings and diverse bitter-sweet interventions about love. True to real life, true love at Lovestock is rare; come see the artists pursue love, fail at relationships, indulge sexual proclivity and endure unrequited love. Love’s realities propel Lovestock’s emotional zenith to the nadir and back. Void of commercial schmaltz, Lovestock is profound, beautiful and sad but also quirky and playful. Lovestock includes a confessional for your romantic sins, haiku poetry that you perform for yourself, a baked goods installation, a slow dance old school style and a cabaret of the depressed. It promises to be a great alternative Valentine’s experience!
