Joyous. Sexy. Heartbreaking. Take a dizzying ride through love’s collision course this Valentines Day.

Based on 800 anonymous love stories, acclaimed Queensland performance collective The Good Room asked members of the public to anonymously submit their stories of love -fragments and memories, confessions and admissions – and they’ve transformed those secret submissions into magnificent declarations centre stage.

I Want To Know What Love Is throws a spotlight on long-buried memories, bedroom fantasies, crushes and conquests. This is for everyone who’s ever loved or anyone who’s ever been hurt.

Submission #87: “It’s been years, but I still think of you and wonder ‘What could have been?’”
Submission #346: “I choose to say it did not fail. It just finished.”
Submission #302: “Jemma forever xo”

This production contains coarse language, sexual references, loud music, sound effects, haze and a complete black out.

“It was incredibly physical…. Visually spectacular … Constant colour and movement… It’s a relationship condensed into one hour. A really joyous experience – like Valentine’s Day on crack!”
