A delightful new enchantment of stagecraft and cinema from the makers of Kiss & Cry.

From ArtsEmerson

Is there life before death? That’s the big question posed by the surprisingly funny and whimsical new show from the troupe behind ArtsEmerson’s 2013 word-of-mouth phenomenon, Kiss & Cry. Utilizing that same theatrical magic — cinematic techniques, miniature sets, dancing hands and a poetic voice-over — Cold Blood cycles through a series of different lives (and deaths) in a hypnotic dream-like state. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry — you’ll never look at your hands the same way again. Join us for a celebration of life, the senses, love and the final moments of light.

Under the direction of Belgian choreographer and dancer Michèle Anne De Mey and the award-winning filmmaker Jaco Van Dormael, master artists use live film projection on stage to bring miniature worlds into full view of the audience.
