Whoever you are, you’ll only know first love once. Maybe it will be your greatest love, never to be eclipsed. It could lead to eternal passion or to bewilderment, to a peck on the cheek or a polite ‘no thank you’, to tragic heartache or a quiet fizzling out. Using verbatim memories of people aged 75 to 105, their stories are woven with physical theatre, dance and puppetry to explore the regrets, joys, and transience of that universal experience. This is not a nostalgia trip, but a vibrant collision of age and youth.
