“With a subtle style and an absurd touch [Kassys] makes the everyday extra ordinary. It is all brilliantly brought into vision.” —DeVolkskrant, the Netherlands
How can something be deeply, profoundly sad yet hilarious at the same time? Somehow, Dutch movement-theater collective Kassys has created a work that is just that. A tender, comic portrayal of human fragility, Kommer (grief) begins with six people at a party and ends with a cinematic exploration of the “private” loneliness of the actors we have gotten to know. Combining film (with some footage shot in the Twin Cities) and live performance in equal doses, the work is both formally daring and emotionally resonant. A Q&A follows the Friday performance.
