Chet Baker, Love is an attempt at closure. How do you end a relationship that never was, yet spans a decade? If only we had said something at the time. If only we hadn‘t said anything ten years later..
A (de-)construction of a real life relationship, Chet Baker, Love explores the ideals of love, the feeling of regret and first and foremost how a piece of music can define a relationship. Love is a fleeting memory. If only one could catch it, define it, make it into something tangible.
Written and performed by Kolbrun Sigfusdottir, directed by Joshua Lucas.

Chet Baker, Love offers a multi-layered and subtly nuanced and skilful performance.
