AMERICA - Visions of love

“AMERICA - Visions of Love” - a two act play based on original text and transcripts of recorded conversations collected whilst traveling through the United States.

Why does the whole world seem to be preoccupied with America and American culture? It seems an image or movie exists in everybody’s mind about what  “America” is.  We decided to grab a-hold of our assumptions; our love, loathing and prejudice, and travel to the USA to collect stories and situations for a play.

What a vast screen one could fill if there were no edits. But, of course, there must be.  We have edited as one might edit a movie; re-ordering, re-contextualizing, re-forming characters, performances, personalities and people. And as in many great film noir courtroom classics, we have tried, judged and sentenced to death those who do not deserve their new fate and let those off, with a caution, who may have otherwise been vilified and destroyed – not in an attempt to present the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth behind contemporary American culture and society, but to confess our own need for myth and fantasy.  “Films... are fantasy...magical illusion”.

“AMERICA - Visions of love” is a play appearing in the form of a screenplay based on transcripts of conversations we took part in or observed, as well as  snatches of recontextualized dialogue from television shows or movies -and of course, our own writing.
