Thursday 20 June
The subtle art of courtship is what makes the difference in an enduring love story: a flower, a song, a dance, a poem, designed to captivate the beloved and to discover the importance of falling in love every day of one's life. Come and meet the artists and their stories brought to life with wild rhythms, enchanting words, and acrobatics to enthrall you at first sight.
