KISS! (Loving Kills) was born as the second chapter of the show directed by Simon Waldvogel "L'amore ist nicht une chose for everybody (Loving Kills)", starting from the same theme but changing the point of view and the hand of writing.

If the first chapter dealt with the more liquid and generational aspect of love, starting from a series of video interviews, in the second chapter we move away from the concreteness of words to enter the woods - at night - towards a more unconscious and less rational dimension of love, towards the impossibility of defining it and the difficulty of understanding it. The forest as a place where we lose our way, to look for ourselves.
The staging moves on the border between darkness 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, time, relationships and oneself.
