Kiss & Cry
MICHÈLE ANNE DE MEY & JACO VAN DORMAEL
a collective creation with Grégory Grosjean, Thomas Gunzig, Julien Lambert, Sylvie Olivé, Nicolas Olivier
A product of the imagination of Michèle Anne De Mey and Jaco Van Dormael, this show has been in a continual state of grace for three years. It is a world that evidently has universal significance given that it is still playing to packed theatres after over two hundred dates worldwide. Its basic premise is the memory we have of people who made us and who have left us. The subject is dealt with in a revolutionary way. That is to say a film is shot and projected simultaneously in the space and time of the theatre, based on the creation in vivo of a nanoworld in which simple prehensile endings become characters dancing amid miniature landscapes. That said, nothing has been revealed.
De Mey, Michèle Anne
This has been a fantastic year for her. Kiss & Cry, an original stage object summoning up object theatre, music, words and nanochoreographies for four hands and dealing with the memory of feelings of love, has won unanimous international acclaim. People have emerged from the show overwhelmed and talking about their own emotional stories. She and Jaco Van Dormael have created it with a group of artists, making it a very personal experience since feelings of love, this thread running through her work, are in a way sublimated here: the film-maker is none other than her partner. Powerful music, telling of the affair from its fickle beginnings to the final split, is another constant in her work and woven into her choreographic universe: Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony in Sinfonia Eroica, the 7th in Neige and the Lamento d’Arianna in her latest piece, a solo she is creating specially for one of her faithful performers. All in all another declaration of love.
Van Dormael, Jaco
