Infused with intense physical theatre, film and dance, Shaun Parker’s Blue Love is a poetic and satirical take on the clichés of pop culture, romance, coupledom and suburbia. From a fantastic place where TV soap meets art-house film, Glenn and Rhonda Flune take the audience on an expedition in search of the perfect relationship.
Blue Love is inspired by famous works of art, theatre, music and film; all of which deal with the concept of love. Glenn and Rhonda draw on and reference all of these art forms, parodying the lip-service given to love and its incarnations. This quirky, character-based work is a multi-media, physical theatre comedy: accessible, challenging and enormously entertaining.
“Blue Love is so much fun it can’t possibly be good for you. Shaun Parker and Veronica Neave apply their well honed dance skills to a movement based parody of an upwardly mobile young couple who trip over their pretensions and their relationship with hilarious unpredictability.” Jill Sykes, The Sydney Morning Herald
“Shaun Parker’s ‘dance’ hit is so cutting edge it actually wanders of the edge of any single word definition. It’s a tight package of snappy acting, super-smooth relevant dancing, superb singing and a fat dose of funny… this reviewer will settle for a single word label after all: brilliant.” Simon Ferguson, Daily Telegraph
