Kiss Bill


#1

Kiss Bill is the latest theatre-dance piece, Kiss Bill by Montrealer Paula de Vasconcelos.



[…]Like the Tarantino film, Kiss Bill revolves around an attractive young woman (dancer Natalie Zoey Gauld) looking for Bill, the man who wronged her (identified here only as “the filmmaker,” played by actor Alexandre Goyette).

The movie has a long prelude to explain why the heroine is seeking to kill Bill in an eye-for-an-eye gesture of revenge. In contrast, at a Kiss Bill performance last week, the heroine sought the filmmaker not to make war, but to make peace.

To the tune of Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), Gauld and Goyette played out the filmmaker’s offending act as a pair of shadows behind a row of large Japanese screens that formed a striking backdrop across the width of Usine C’s expansive stage (and recalled the decor in Kill Bill).

Gauld was like a persistent memory in the mind of the filmmaker, who spent much of his time debating his next project with his producer (actress Sylvie Moreau). In a role that’s become a cliché, Moreau was the Hollywood sideshow barker ready to put anything and everything on the screen dispassionately as long as it separated the suckers from their money.

Of course, to such a producer, violence is key. In a humorous exchange, filmmaker and producer mimed different kinds of weapons - guns, bombs, chainsaw - with which to “slaughter” each other. Throughout the work, de Vasconcelos consciously employed stylized gestures and comedy to prevent the show’s “violent” acts from becoming merely sensational.

“I didn’t want to do a work that questions violence by using violence,” said de Vasconcelos in a recent interview. “The best way is to distance yourself (from violence) and find the ridiculous aspect of it.”[…]

You do a better job than actual mod, so cute :stuck_out_tongue:



Edit : We’ll just clean this topic with all the off-topic blabla (even if I have to admit it was funny to read), so that if people really wanna comment about the news, they still can and won’t be stopped by the topic locked.

Thank you so much Lili. :-* Because that’s what the real moderator should do. But everybody just seem to spam topics with their off-topic chat.

It was a bit of fun. You can’t be serious all the time, Eastern Beauty. You kind of remind me of this other member we used to have called Femme_Fatale a.k.a Yasmin. She was always negative and a pessimist. But away from these forum discussions she was the nicest person and very cool. Can you show these latter qualities? Maybe then people will give you a break. Think about it.

I’m not a pessimist, everybody think I am because I’m very serious because my life is very hard and I have no friends :’(

Your life is hard? So hard that you can spend all this time on a forum? Maybe if you weren’t so uptight, you’d make a few friends. Like Luke Skywalker once said “I have seen the good in you”. You know you can do it.























PS. I do love you really :-*

Well, I mean I have some friends but no real friends who would really understand me. I’m a tough person.



Edit: I feel like spamming again :-[

Well it’s natural to go from talking about one thing to another. As long as we don’t lose our way completely. Anyway, I can see how you can be a tough person, but I know that deep down you’re just a soft little pussy cat. :stuck_out_tongue:

Why thank you Ify :slight_smile: Negative AND nice. Probably one of the nicest things I’ve heard myself being described as. How are you, sweetums :wink:

Haha, awesome. Now I gotta figure out who you really are. I hope you are who I think you are. Post some more, and I’ll make an assumption.

Beware, Yasmin is probably Kilgore in disguise.
