OPEN CALL TO PARTICIPATE IN "THE 122, 202, OR 222 KISSES... IN MADRID"
FRIDAY 8th MAY CA2M — SATURDAY 9th MAY CASA ENCENDIDA
12:00 — 21:00 H.
Aimed at anyone aged over 18.
A middle-aged woman kisses and is being kissed by an infinity of strangers. Volunteers of different ages, genders, identities, sizes, intentions and formats, in an endless succession. The act of kissing creates encounters, dialogs, battles, uncomfortable intimacies, a banquet of bodies, something unique, a choreography of mouth gestures, an intellectual orgy in order to exchange tastes, an installation of impossible positions, a photo album in motion. On the 8th of May in the CA2M and on the 9th of May in La Casa Encendida, a video will be shot with everybody who would like to participate in this action of kissing a stranger. Later on, the video will be screened at different places in Madrid.
This visual project is connected to the parallel choreography piece, Three Ways To Master A Kiss Or A Twenty-Five-Minute Kiss At Your Neck (Los Besos), the rerun of which, with a cast of 10 artists from Madrid, will be shown in Teatro Pradillo during the last week of May 2015. Both The 122, 202, or 222 Kisses... In Madrid and Three Ways To Master A Kiss Or A Twenty-Five-Minute Kiss At Your Neck (Los Besos) are the result of a research on the act of kissing and on the kiss as material for choreography, produced over the last ten years by artist Aitana Cordero.
In collaboration with Teatro Pradillo and La Casa Encendida
