KISS : Description of Work
KISS: an experiment for body and mind
When was the last time?
What do you remember?
What would you like someone else to remember?
What is a KISS? A perfect moment when all desires, needs and dreams become one. No two kisses are the same. In our KISS the Kissed is full of the experience of past kisses. A good kiss is never lost! Her memory is so bright that the audience can even see the past in front of them. Dancer Takako Segawa is the Kissed in physical here-and-now time. Maxine Heppner performs her shadow mind through manipulation of words and video. Every kiss is a new experience, is it not? So we approach each performance of KISS as an experiment for body and mind.
