Has anyone ever sprayed an “I LOVE YOU” on your doorstep? Was a farewell box left on your doorstep at the end of your relationship? Has this shoebox been called “Jürgen” ever since? Do you still have love letters from primary school? Does your marriage need a to-do list?
A leftover toothbrush; a fennel pierced by a Cupid arrow; the broken dishes from the last breakfast. These and many other relics tell their true, authentic love stories.
Luise Loué has collected such love objects and reaches into her treasure chest for the Tour d’amour. Memorabilia and gifts, created with fervor for a loved one, tell of the madness, magic and impossibility of love. This can be touching to tears, but also bizarre and really funny – just like love itself.
The Munich chansonwriter Stefan Noelle is a modern minstrel and a declared lover of poetry. He frames Luise Loué’s collected stories with his own love songs from different phases of life. Fine humour and honest emotion alternate. As funny as his amorous experiences with strawberry punch or the erotic potential of fennel (!) and fenugreek may sound, his songs are as touching. Noelle’s debut “Meinetwegen im Regen” received a nomination for the German Record Critics’ Award in 2016.
Together Luise Loué and Stefan Noelle weave an evening of lived stories. An evening of great feelings, true for laughing, beautiful for crying. And they implore their audience: “Don’t forget love!”
