Kiss Musical Comedy

“What this duo celebrated and performed on stage was grandiose. These artists use only their bodies and voices as music instruments. Nothing more. But they do it with such energy, knowingly and persuasive, that their act is also a very amusing and interesting pleasure, that in the same time has depth. What they offer is pure energy, rhythm in its primordial form.”

Peter Kees, Süddeutsche Zeitung

 

Kiss is a comedy, a story of playing, flirting, teasing, competing, and, above all, about love between men and women. Inventive, new musical arrangements of rock, pop and traditional songs from Balkans, with original songs of Alice in WonderBand are performed with the simplest means, only with body and voice. It’s a stunning celebration of sounds, rhythms, dance, acting, singing and acrobatics in its primordial form.

The play was performed more than sixty times and seen by 15.000 viewers in France, Germany, Austria, Italy, Turkey, Montenegro, Bosnia, Croatia and on many stages and festivals in Serbia. The play was awarded for the exploration of sound as a way of expression in theater by Zijah Sokolovic at the Art Trema Fest in Ruma, Serbia.

Alice in WonderBand was founded in 1998 on Fruska Gora Mountain and since then the band has been performing and teaching in Serbia and region. They are the only artists in this part of Europe that have been developing that very specific type of performing arts: uniting music, theater, dance, movement and acrobatics with the special art of body percussion. They have been working with international body percussion artists and developing this technique which uses the body as a rhythmical instrument. Alice in WonderBand is a lifelong project of musicians Ana Vrbaski and Marko Dinjaski, that are partners on stage and in private life for 22 years, which gives their presence and relationship on stage completely new dimension.

Visnja Obradovic – director is actress of Serbian National Theater in Novi Sad. She was educated internationally in acting, movement, dance and comedia dell’ arte. She plays numerous rolls in her theater and has received numerous acknowledgements and awards. She was working as an assistant professor at the Academy of Arts in Novi Sad, teaching stage movement and comedia dell’ arte.

From the Press:

The audience at Meta Theater could not get enough of listening and watching: Ana Vrbaški and Marko Dinjaški performed a celebration of sound and rhythm.

The voice of Ana Vrbaški deserves to be heard with great attention. She has a rich voice, full of strength with sparkling depth and sings ecstatic in one moment and very light in the next, as if she is playing. Marko Dinjaški also sings, plays and a gives rhythm for commend.

Every part of the performance fits into the picture: body and voice, choreography, timing, play, presence on stage and direction of Višnja Obradović. Even with mouth full of water they gurgle and play magical tunes. Bravissimo!

« 1 od 2 »

A theater show that combines the element of concert and new circus. Witty and, if superficially looked at, naive, it invites the audience to remember the strength that our body has, through a very brisk and intensive rhythm of performance with its specific tempo and honesty; it invites the audience to awaken through play and dance.

The Duo Vrbaski/Dinjaski is very much focused in the performance and very professional, again making the audience remember that the body is older than the head, that is has his own memory and that it can say a lot. Their performance is triumvirate of precision, focus and spontaneity.   

Natasa Gvozdenovic, theater critic

This is a theater show about the endless possibilities for creativity and developing creativity using your own body, sensitivity and wit, the beauty and lightness of stage sense and sound, available always and everywhere.

Vladislava Vojnovic, dramaturg, writer, screenwriter
