On Love and the Lack Thereof
A solo clown performance created and performed by Erica Mott
Duration 60 minutes full length, 20 minute excerpted work.
Various versions of the solo performance have taken place between 2007-2010 in Chicago and Toronto.
This solo theatrical piece in the style of a European clown drama, celebrates the art of sacrificial love and all the propaganda which sells it to us. Obsessed by the glamour of romance and death from a broken heart, our heroine takes us on a journey of falling in and out of line over and over and over again. Transformation is the only constant as she carves a high fashion world of seduction out of the trash dumpster in which she resides. Incorporating puppets, dance and song, the spectator receives wisdom on love from very unlikely sources. Created in collaboration with John Turner (Mump and Smoot) and Paola Coletto Kaplan.
