Object of Affection

Improvised Pixar Love Story

The show

Love is the common feeling bounding all the living creatures on earth. But what if objects can fall in love, have their heart broken or live happily ever after? Maybe a pencil and an eraser can have a future. Or maybe true love is out of reach for a tea kettle and a chocolate tab.

In this duoshow, we follow the impossible love story between two objects or animals. Will they succeed to see beyond their differences? Will they be accepted in their lover’s family? Will love win overall?

Laura and Gael are playing strong and physical characters to bring you a universal story of love and its obstacles. A show like a Pixar movie: sensitive, funny and never trivial.
Object of Affection is a beautiful, sweet, funny, physical show full of heart and laughter created by two absolute masters of their craft. It can be easy for old improvisers like myself to get jaded but watching this show will make you feel like you’re watching improv for the first time all over again. It’s just that magical.

Imagine the happiest days of your childhood. The bubbling feeling of joy of running barefoot in the grass, having fun with your best friends and seeing imaginary things. Lying on your back, looking at the clouds moving in the sky, or mesmerized by the stars in a warm summer evening. Imagine the soft embrace of someone safe and calming.
Enthusiastic, energetic and vibrant, Laura and Gael will bring you back to more innocent time where everything was possible. One of the most remarkable theatre shows I’ve witnessed for a long time!
