Kissing Rebellion Tickets

Ballet & Dance
Kissing Rebellion a new dance theatre show at Ovalhouse Theatre
Exploring the impact of global crises and personal heartbreaks, Kissing Rebellion is a new dance theatre performance inspired by the social media message that followed the Paris attacks in 2015: “Il va falloir beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup d’amour”- “It’s going to take a lot, a lot, a lot of love.” Hosting dinners over the last three years in their home cities of London, Paris, Chicago and Los Angeles, co-creators Carolyn Defrin and Abigail Boucher audio-recorded their guests’ humorous, passionate and sorrowful stories that began with a kiss. With connections to family, friends, lovers, identities, places and histories, these original recordings are woven together with live performance, inviting audiences to investigate the capacity to heal and care in the wake of what has been shattered. “Through hundreds of conversations we’ve had about kissing in the last three years- we’ve discovered how much a kiss can be a radical act of care, and how sharing stories about kisses can be just as radical' 'The simplest gesture can be the greatest act of care.' A new dance theatre performance about our ability to heal and care in the wake of what has been shattered.

    The show simply reminded me of my loved ones now living far away, and made me want to go back to my birthplace. Also my memories of best kisses along with some sweet and/or hot stories (and those that aren’t, but still has become one of the somewhat emotional stories when I look back). The performance of the actors were just so super. Their physical and acting abilities were outstanding!
