The Lovers

DUCT presents an online rendition of ‘The Lovers’ by Esalan Gates.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ is a magical romp through a forest filled with confused lovers and the occasional donkey. ‘The Lovers’ asks whether it is quite so comedic when the trappings of fairies and mechanicals fall away, leaving what is ultimately an uncomfortably dark exploration of what it means to be in love.
