Love Lost: Page Cannot Be Displayed

Gabriel Pages concerns for the future of love have inspired him to create his 2010 Wellington Fringe Festival Show L is for Love, Love is for Losers. The last decade saw a dramatic change in the way we connect with each other. With an increasing reliance on mobile phones and social networking sites, the art of human interaction has taken a turn, and it maybe for the worse. “Flirting certainly isnt the same,” says Gabriel Page, “I vaguely remember when women would go to the effort to wince or feel obliged to be polite with my advances, now all they have to do is click delete”.

While we spend more time in the constantly changing world of virtual socialising, its easy to lose sight of how we once formed bonds in the real world. With his popular songs such as “Youre Lucky (To Have Me to Love You)” and “Baby, Youre a Dead Girl”, L is for Love, Love is for Losers will remind us all that with persistence, unfaltering commitment and a willingness to turn a blind eye, any relationship can thrive.

Gabriel Page is a singer/songwriter who specialises in twisted love songs. Hes a resident of Wellington and lives in the southern suburbs. In 2009 he was a Wellington Raw Comedy Finalist, and was part of the successful NZ International Comedy Festival show “Miscellaneous, Etc”. L is for Love, Love is for Losers is his debut show and the first time hes been part of the Wellington Fringe Festival.
