De Nieuwe Vrede
'L’amour des fleurs' is Fien Simons’ debut as a choreographer and director. The production is based on her piece 'Voilà'.
‘I have always learnt that flowers are there so that you can say sorry with them.
I don’t know why, but women always get flowers if their husband forgot their birthday or if he has committed adultery.
Flowers are a better way of bribing someone than money.
They are beautiful, I grant you that, more beautiful than the reason why they are given.
The beautiful symbol for someone who couldn’t keep his hands to himself at the kitchen table.’
In L’amour des fleurs, a dancer searches for a way to deal with a dire event in her life. She leads the audience through her pain and along the path to picking up the pieces of her life again. L’amour des fleurs is a hard, but hopeful production combing dance, theatre and film.
