Love’s left hand

By LEMOUR - Physical Theatre

They really want each other. It has been a perfect date and the lovebirds can’t wait to reach her house. On the way, he heart-openly tosses a coin into a stranger’s hat, passionately wishing for her to be the one.

But the stranger is not just a stranger – it is love’s left hand, who feels invited by this gesture to get involved: love’s left hand’s purpose it to appear unrecognised in the lives of those in love and create opportunities to face inner shadows so that the one who dares to embrace it may be able to experience true connection. A heart-warming play about the courage to trust in love’s sense of humour.

Oleg Denisov: Economy Vodka

Gothenburg Fringe's highest-selling performer in 2019 is back with a new show!

Do we become what we sell? Russia's Fringe veteran of political satire, philosopher by training, and internationally touring stand-up by trade, Oleg rips into economics of emotions in his fourth solo hour. In the age when feelings, ideas and whole identities are for sale, is it humanly possible to know what you love, think, or who the f**k you even are?

"Razor-sharp insight and rapid-fire laughs" (Manchester Evening News), ★★★★ "Hilarious" (The Student), ★★★★ "A well-honed act" (Mumble Comedy), "Fascinating comedian... cerebral and provocative" (Edinburgh Reporter). Will contain ** "some serviceable gags about skinheads" (TheWeeReview).
