About This Show

An innovative reimagining of film techniques for live performance, You Can’t Kiss a Movie features performer Shelley Farmer, whose passionate (obsessive?) love of French movies from the 1960s New Wave is the seed for an original story about an ill-fated love affair, told through the songs and dialogue of those movies. With a spirit of youthful immediacy inspired by the films themselves, this bilingual cabaret playfully tweaks the films’ themes and gender roles while continuing their investigation into the costs and virtues of emotional engagement in art and life. You Can’t Kiss a Movie is an exuberant, affecting show for both film buffs and newcomers.
