ROOM TEMPERATURE ROMANCE

This charming story is about the moments that mean nothing and everything in life’s daily routine.

Combining the mundane with the absurd, audiences are taken on a trip down memory lane as the performers recount tales of youth, life and love.

Blending dance, video and movement with flamboyant costume and evocative audio, Levantes’ charismatic and idiosyncratic style playfully explores the perverse aspects of the human psyche.

This fantasy voyage invites you to indulge in the delights of both ordinary and extraordinary behaviour, revealing their beauty and ultimately making you smile.

“With a kitsch aesthetic and kooky costumes ,… [they] create a space where a world of play is superimposed on the ordinary and everyday.”

“The quirky and eccentric touches suggest the depths of emotion and even perversity that lie beneath the mundane and everyday.”
