Can science really explain what we mean when we talk of love?

A Matter of Love follows the story of two people who allow us to observe and to share in their narrative. We see them meet, their hearts race and palms sweat; get excited, find common ground, find brilliance in passion and stumble over unrealised emotions. 

 They are a universal couple: they are you and I.

 Mind Over Matter ask, why and how do we form romantic relationships? If love is just a sensation then how do we account for its longevity? 


"In reality, love is not necessarily a lasting, unchanging state. Long time love is not automatic, but takes hard work, unselfishness and a willingness to be vulnerable."


A Matter of Love previewed in it's early stages of development at the Etcetera Theatre, January 2016.
Researched in collaboration with philosophers Helen Yetter-Chappell and Prof. Dorothea Debus



'The body language is simply excellent throughout, demonstrating how what isn’t said has the ability to ‘speak’ just as much,

if not more, than what is spoken.'
