Kiss & Cry
Charleroi Danses, Belgium
A poetic piece that blurs the boundaries between artistic disciplines, Kiss & Cry brings together a diverse group of Belgian artists to create this sweeping, romantic work. A woman near the end of her life reminisces and recounts her greatest loves, starting with her first and truest: a boy whose hand she touched for a few seconds on a crowded train when she was 12 years old. Hands visually portray these main characters with a beautifully engaging sensual presence, moving around a set of miniatures with absolute precision. In this blend of film, dance, text and theatre, the audience witnesses a film screened and simultaneously made in front of their eyes. A unique event told with tender and poignant eloquence, Kiss & Cry is an unforgettable experience.
“Miniature sets become tiny universes that host both potent and delicate scenes full of true poetry.” – Núvol
