In this performance, filmed and directed by Petros Birbilis and performed by dancer Nikos Kalogerakis we find a metaphor of Francesco Alberoni‘s “soco-phycological” theory which states that falling in love is a process of the same nature as a religious or political conversion. He believes that people fall in love when they are ready to change, or to start a new life. According to Wikipedia “Falling in love” is mainly a Western term used to describe the process of moving from a feeling of neutrality towards a person to one of love. The use of the term “fall” implies that the process is in some way inevitable, uncontrollable, risky, irreversible, or that it puts the lover in a state of vulnerability, in the same way the word “fall” is used in the phrase “to fall ill” or “to fall into a trap”. The term is generally used to describe an (eventual) love that is strong, although not necessarily permanent.
