Kissing unites the place of speech with that of the body:
when we KISS, it is no longer possible to speak.
and the body is transformed into a new alphabet.
KISS! (Loving Kills) was born as the second chapter to the show directed by Simon Waldvogel L'amore ist nicht une chose for everybody (Loving Kills) of Collettivo Treppenwitz, starting from the same theme but with a different point of view and handwriting.
KISS! enter the woods - at night - towards an unconscious and less rational dimension of love, towards the impossibility of defining it and the difficulty of understanding it.
The staging moves on the border between dark and light, between presence and absence, between emptiness and its need to be filled. Figures that shape and mirror each other. The relationship with me, with the other me or the other from me, the masculine and the feminine, the one and its multitude, being and non-being.
KISS!, plays with the perception of things, of time, of relationships and of the self.
