Video: Six pieces of Love and Information

Date posted: 10 Jun 2015Author: STC Production: Love and Information

A child cannot feel pain. A man has a secret. A woman wants an affair. A scientist dissects a brain. Someone tells the police. Another puts an elephant on the stairs. In a series of tantalising vignettes, over 100 vibrant characters search for meaning in their lives.

Watch these characters come to life in a collection of cinematic snippets below.

Love and Information is a co-production with Malthouse Theatre Company.
