Ah kissing is at BUZZCUT on 8th April!

You can still take part in Ah kissing – contact firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up on the info desk at BUZZCUT by Thursday the 6th April
Workshop rehearsal on Thursday 6th April 6-8pm upstairs at the Brechin Bar close to Pearce Institute
Performance on Saturday 8th April 3.30pm – with participants meeting up at 1.30pm
Ah kissing takes the form of the gradual emergence of many kissing couples in a public space. At BUZZCUT this will be outside the subway station at Govan, Glasgow
Ah kissing works with slowness, augmenting awareness within the environment, seeping into public spaces, with multiple acts of kissing silently emerging … and slowly melting away … Ah kissing aims to create a delicate and extended moment of human affection – and to quietly celebrate the ordinariness and glory of human connection
We are looking for a diverse group of participants of all ages (16+), genders, abilities, sexualities, races and ethnicities. Participants don’t need performance experience, only to come with a kissing partner
As a participant you will move slowly towards your partner, kiss in your own way, while standing – or sitting if you prefer – for around 15 minutes taking pauses when you want, and then move on
If you have any access requirements that may make this action difficult for you then don’t hesitate to get in touch as we have resources available to support you and we’d love for you to take part!
All participants will receive a free lunch on the day of the performance, an opportunity to see all the work in the festival for free and travel expenses paid (within Glasgow)
We are trying to get together as diverse a group as possible for this piece
We look forward to hearing from you!
