about love and the lack thereof
music and movement theatre by Paul Röttger


Eighteen actors, with and without a disability,
act in a play without words.
About the possibilities and limitations
that love imposes on us in everyday life.
It’s “love” in life what it’s all about.
And that’s more than infatuation, passion and lust.
Love is inevitable, sometimes obsessive and gives us comfort as well.


Con Amore is not just about situations where love is present,

but also about those moments when it’s absent or seems to be absent.
It’s about the shortcomings around love.
And all this without words, with live music and a meal afterwards.
