[Calderon is] Chile's most acclaimed playwright-director of the last two decades
- New York Times
Politically charged and emotionally urgent, KISS dares us to question whether we can truly understand other cultures.
INTERVIEW WITH DIRECTOR: BART DeLORENZO
LOS ANGELES TIMES
"PROFOUND... ‘Kiss’ isn’t easy for a critic to discuss, but it’s gratifying to contemplate."
STAGE SCENE LA
"WOW!... COMPELLING… a surreal, meta-theatrical commentary on love and war and loss and hope in a country gone mad, on our inability as Americans to understand a world so far removed from our own, and on the power of theater to bridge the gap between diametrically different lives."
"PERSONAL, POLITICAL, THEATRICAL... For those who appreciate an intellectual challenge in the dark interior of theatre where almost anything can happen, this is an important milestone along the road to a bold, interrogative new theatre aesthetic"
ARTS IN LA
"SUPERB… Kiss gets under the skin."
"ELECTRIFYING theatre, perhaps the best new play exhibited on any Los Angeles stage this year"
ON STAGE AND SCREEN
"SURPRISING, COMPELLING... like much about it, the true meaning of the title will shock you."
PAUL MYRVOLD'S THEATRE NOTES
"PROVOCATIVE... eminently watchable... land[s] and reinforce[s] some very critical truths regarding life and death in Syria"
"OFF BEAT AND COMPLEX... expert and inventive direction…superb work [by] its young actors... one of the most compelling and provocative plays Los Angeles has seen in recent years."
"CREATIVE, NUANCED, MULTI-LAYERED... upends conventional storytelling techniques... challenging... adventurous."
