The performance begins: A bell is rung by each individual as they enter the theatrical space. A glass of water is ceremoniously distributed, and everyone drinks together. The ritual has begun. The audience is then asked a series of questions about love and lovers. If the answer is yes to any one of the questions, they are invited to sit.

Mysterious, symbolic, achingly intimate. Two lovers whose love exists across time, and transforms across time, philosophize and ritualize love as a vital aspect of living.
