Charleroi Danses: Kiss & Cry
On from 25 Jun 2014 till 28 Jun 2014
by Jaco Van Dormael and Michèle Anne De Mey

Tickets: £16 - £28

About: Charleroi Danses: Kiss & Cry

Alone on a station platform, a woman recalls her great – and once forgotten – loves. Her memories take shape in a miniature world where toys, figurines and everyday objects have the power to delight.

Scaled-down sets provide the backdrop for a duo of dancing hands that flirt and intertwine, becoming tender characters in their own right. Caught on camera by a bustling crew, their sensual ballet is projected on a panoramic screen, lending dual perspectives to an event in which artistic disciplines collide.

From prizewinning filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael and choreographer Michèle Anne De Mey, Kiss & Cry’s blend of live cinematography and distinctive physicality has caused amazement worldwide.

'We constantly go from affection to wonder, captivated by the originality, simplicity, poetry of what is shown … a small masterpiece' Pariscope (France)


'A little jewel that crosses genres with elegance' Le Journal du Dimanche (France)

'A small marvel. Generates unalloyed pleasure, especially as the images, dreamlike or funny, are superb' Le Monde (France)

'Simply the most magical performance I've seen in a long, long time... it should be a worldwide hit' Utopia Parkway (Belgium)

'A Belgian meld of theatre, video, text and dance that was breathtaking and beautiful, not to mention mind-blowing in its disciplined live creation by a cadre of performers, technicians and artists of varied disciplines' Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (USA)
