The key to longevity is learning every aspect of [dance] that you can.
“Kiss” is a manifestation of the desire to reclaim dance as a driving force and joyful expression of being alive. The choreography for three dancers evolves along Prince’s posthumously released album “Piano & A Microphone 1983”. His remarkable ability to move between aesthetics, as well as the diversity of the musical language of this album, serve as a compositional and narrative basis. “Kiss” plays virtuously and heterogeneously with techniques, qualities and colours of dance to recapture it in its affective potential and musicality – dance as an invigorating experience.
