I Would Like To Get To Know You Presented by Feral Foxy Ladies and Kaleido Film Collective.
What is it?
A musical comedy show that uses a number of mediums including song, dance, film and imagery to explore the different stages of modern dating, taken from real life experiences.
What's it all about?
Katherine Vince and George Cheetham bring us a five part guide to modern dating. Through voice over clips from various interviews we are given a range of opinions on Tinder and online dating, to what it feels like to fall in and out of love, and what being in a relationship means to different people.
Vince uses dance and movement in a fluid and expressive way to accompany many of these voices and gives so much energy to these stories.
Original music is used quite a lot throughout as well, and the skilled musicianship and clever lyrics are relaxed and understated and completely relatable.
