Modern Love: What's the Heart of the Matter?
Since D.H. Lawrence’s scandalous Lady Chatterley's Lover, Theophile Gautier’s banned Mademoiselle de Maupin, or the emergence of the term “French Kiss” in the 19th century, our ideas on love have evolved quickly and have taken many passionate forms. In this Dialogue we will consider love from myriad, interconnected perspectives. Our expert speakers, will offer illuminating insights on everything from new scientific discoveries on the influence of hormones on attraction to the effects of technology on relationships to changing cultural norms, gender roles, and attitudes on marriage. Together, we will catalyze a colourful dialogue exploring the complex nature of modern love and the future of romance in society.
Seated in an informal circle (with audience in surrounding concentric circles), each speaker elaborates on their expertise of the general topic and their stance on the specific question.
The evening then moves to a fun 'dialogue' where speakers complement and challenge each other in a debate style, offering perspectives ranging from personal lifestyle or career choices to implications on wider society. Each speaker will have up to 2 mins at any one time (enforced by the chair with a melodious gong!) and can only do so through the "Dialogue Phone” (a technological triumph!
After a couple of rounds, the 'dialogue' will be opened up to you, the audience, for an opportunity to engage with the speakers (once again through the brilliant invention that is the “Dialogue Phone”)
