To love is hard, being loved even harder  
A group of young men and women are in search of love and security. They celebrate life but their attempts to reach each other are in vain. With Ich Brauche Liebe, Groningen visual artist Nina Wijnmaalen has created a touching performance about vulnerability and the complexity of human interaction. The seven performers and two musicians (a singer and a pianist) drive each other to a climax and ultimately hold a mirror up to us, showing us the way we treat one another. Wijnmaalen has exhibited work at places including FLAM Performancefestival, Dansmakers Amsterdam, festivals and galleries in Russia, Brazil and Italy, and at her evening salons in the city of Groningen.
