Hace unas semanas Miguel Vallejo Espada nos estuvo comentando sobre una pieza de teatro que vivio este verano en el Festival de Manchester, titulada It Felt Like a Kiss de la compañia Punchdrunk. Se trata de una instalación de gran formato, acompañada de musica en la que el publico entra a formar parte de un juego peculiar.
Imagine walking into a disused building. You find yourself inside a film. It is a ghost story where unexpected forces, veiled by the American Dream, come out from the dark to haunt you…
It Felt Like a Kiss tells the story of America’s rise to power in the golden age of pop, and the unforeseen consequences it had on the world and in our minds. Beginning in 1959, the show spotlights the dreams and desires that America inspired during the ’60s, when the world began to embrace the country and its culture as never before. But as this daring production unfolds across five floors, blending music with documentary and the disorientating whirl of a fairground ghost train, the audience is forced to face the dark forces that were veiled by the American dream – a dream that ultimately returns to haunt us all.
