Con Artist presents “Beyond the Pale”, a Valentine’s Day show that celebrates love in its most intense manifestations. Love is more than candy hearts, rom-com reruns and boxes of chocolate. It emerges in unexpected places, grows into passion, and not infrequently goes hand in hand with insanity.
In “Beyond the Pale” artists showcase the taboo side of infatuation. They explore the twisted connections between affection and violence, the narrative of two young lovers in a struggle against the world, the fervent agony of unrequited devotion, and the awkward ignorance of the martyred saint who gave Western culture its cheesiest holiday.
