With rosy cheeks, flirty bodies and occasional love songs, sung to the rhythm of a strict march, the performers bang their heads into the kitchen sink meanwhile they investigate the couple relationship as an institution and the template of success.4 – 9 Aug
C Venues, Chamber Street, EH1 1HRFor info on the performance through C Venues click here!“Roses & Beans” is a social happening and a performance in one. It is about how we organise and experience love, and about the model of the couple as the ultimate formula for happiness. Andersson and Sahlin are borrowing extracts of life and art from couples like Marina & Ulay, John & Yoko and Brad & Angelina. They invite you to a party and want to share a very special moment with you. “Roses & Beans” takes contemporary pop culture as its starting point, providing a commentary on the omnipresent cult of love, relationships and sexuality.

“A musical where the viewers are offered coffee and cake and where the actors creep up onto the knees of the audience – a performance where all the concepts are turned on their heads.”
