This documentary theatre performance aims to reflect on love as a political and utopian space discussing what it meant to love in the colonial and postcolonial space. This performance was devised from interviews of people that lived colonial times, but also the new generations that were born after the end of the Portuguese colonial Empire that are still conditioned by the colonial frame and thought. Post-Colonial
Loves questions the politics of love in the colonial space and portrays the different ways how the violence of colonialism could act upon the past and present relationships. For this performance we
collected testimonies of former Portuguese soldiers who have children with black African women in wartime, white Portuguese women who have fallen in love with black Africans belonging to the Liberation movements, and also the children of these relationships. With this performance, the theatre company Hotel Europa begins a new chapter in its investigation on colonialism, scrutinizing the love during the Colonial and Post-Colonial period.
