About the performance
How de we kiss? How much do we kiss? Who do we kiss? The work deals with the act of kissing, a precious moment between two people where the personal space merges and speech stops.
The kiss as a point of conquest, as a goal, as a point of connection between two people. The meeting place of a kiss is also considered as a metaphor for how one person interacts with or perceives another person. How, through talking about kissing, questions may arise that have to do with our perception of the other, the way we accept or reject.
On stage we find two performers, Arianna Marcoulides and Eleana Alexandrou, who begin a lecture on kissing in which personal thoughts, stories, discrimination, satire and vivid three-dimensional form unfold through the two bodies and the stage design curated by Eva Korae. The texts are original using the English, Greek and Cypriot colloquial language and the lighting is curated by Kyriaki Paphitou.
