Franko B presents his new multi-disciplinary performance, Because of Love volume 1. Central to the work is the idea of the sentimentality of memory – the emotional charge and romanticism often applied to our experience of remembering culture. The piece represents a departure in Franko’s practice, moving away from the tableaux vivants of his previous work. Here, multiple elements (including live presence, original music, animation and video projection, lighting and scenography) are brought together to weave a loose, non-linear narrative, guiding the audience through a dynamic journey that unfolds over an hour. The centrepiece of the work is a choreographed duet with Franko B and a life-sized animatronic polar bear.
