Studies of Loving Memory is a performance essay on the relationship between memory and love, inspired by Lover’s Discourse: Fragments by Roland Barthes. The audience is guided in small groups through the basement of the Colón Theatre where they come across domestic scenes: a woman telling her daughter a dream as she washes her underwear, a professor and his female student trying to piece together the night they spent together, two old women reconstructing the first time they slept with someone… Each scene illustrates a problem of amnesia or excess of memory, as if they were quotations from a treatise on love.
