2021 NTT-TIFA Kiss&Cry Collective Cold Blood



When death arrives, it is absurd, often trivial and sometimes comical. Cold Blood tells the stories of seven unexpected deaths, and the final vision that appears to each of the protagonists as they breathe their last breath a bit of happiness buried deep within their memories.


The Belgian choreographer Michèle Anne De Mey and film director Jaco Van Dormael together with Kiss&Cry Collective bring this “experimental film on a kitchen table” to the stage through a mix of dance, film and dark humor. In this Lilliputian décor, hands intertwine then relax, touch each other and leave the scene, then come back before disappearing for good. The stage becomes a film set, with the miniature dance projected onto a large screen amid breathtaking lights and music.
