Part 3 - How to enter a kiss
I want to kiss happily ever after but ‘salivafalls’ and opinionated tongues leave me with no space to dance; no room to bloom with confidence.
When a kiss happens, there’s no space for words anymore. This is my summary of Luce Irigaray‘s final chapter in her book This sex which is not one. ‘Part 3: How to enter a kiss’ is a performance work that negotiates what we know about kissing and provides space to think of and imagine an encounter with another.
How to care about kissing?
How to care?
