The Fregoli Heart Project
Fregoli Theatre Company
The Fregoli Heart Project is a play about Love and the heart; how love makes us move, feel, think; how we love, who/what we love and in what spaces/places we feel love. What does love do for us, and what do we do for love?
The Fregoli Heart Project is a performance devised from stories from the public about love in all its forms. These stories are presented through dialogue, movement, music, dance, imagery, storytelling and vocal expression.
There is a cast of 17, four core performers, 8 young dancers from Direct Provision in Galway and five young actors from the Bohermore Youth Drama Group in Galway city. The creative team also includes a visual artist and a composer . The Fregoli Heart Project explores different forms of love, friendship, family, romantic, passion for sport, work, art, and how these loves affect our sense of self and belonging. It is about how we care, our expectations, acceptances, rejections, growth, destructions, vulnerability and the heart itself.
'touching, funny, poignant, joyful, heartfelt and true... an ultimately uplifting play on the theme of Love and on our capacity to both feel and show it'
