based on the imagination of Silvia Calderoni and Ilenia Caleo

" What I was actually trying to do in my early movies was show how people can meet other people and what they can do and what they can say to each other.
That was the whole idea: two people getting acquainted. And then when you saw it and you saw the sheer simplicity of it, you learned what it was all about. Those movies showed you how some people act and react with other people. They were like documentaries. "

Kiss is new because it is now, but also a little while ago.
Kiss is serialized, screen-printed, a multiplied reproduction of a gesture that propagates virally: a kiss.
Kiss is a queer temporal dimension that does not lead to any paradise.
Kiss boycotts the narrative, reorganizing the scenic space according to an idea of comfort and simultaneity.
Kiss literally inhabits the scene.
Kiss is not meritocratic.
Kiss is a multi-organism that moves independently.
Kiss is a documentary or, if you want, a hairy object.
Kiss opens the doors and leaves them open so you can enter or exit.
Kiss can transmit bacteria.
In Kiss economies are a subject for the production of discourse.
Kiss does not translate but rather converts languages.

The scene is a hyper-object that eats us, discusses us, makes us sleep, makes us dance.
Kiss is measured in steps, it measures time by unwinding rolls of film, it becomes an anthropometric system, but precisely because of this it fails every measurement. Bodies and emotions are beyond measurement.
After the experience of the master class at the Biennale Teatro 2018, we are continuing our development and research by imagining a habitat. This is a systemic entity that generates relationships between living and non-living bodies, rather than organizing the context in which the bodies are placed. The aim of the residency is to investigate how the relationships within the scene between the performers, and between performers and the "outside", can subvert the principle of an external direction or replace it with alternative scenic systems of self-governance to create the composition.
