On stage: Histoire d’Amour

I’m so excited that Sylvie Bouchard and Bouchard Dances are remounting Histoire d’Amour, an evening-length dance-theatre trio based on an undying quest for love and a need to understand its meaning.

I’m not sure I could’ve dreamed up a more incredible June. I took The Love Lettering Project to the UK for a 5-city tour, where I asked folks in London, Brighton, Bristol, Liverpool and Nottingham what they loved about where they lived. It was extraordinarily inspiring. More about all of the amazing love letters folks…
