A contemporary dance theatre production inspired by Jean Genet’s film and poetry that tells a love story of two prisoners. Un Chant d’amour is a beautiful silent film in which Genet uses visual language with the greatest of ease.  Ignoring traditional plot and psychology, Genet’s plays rely heavily on ritual, transformational, illusional and interchangeable identities. His experiences in prison would inform much of his work. The homosexuals, prostitutes, thieves and outcasts of his plays are trapped in self-destructive circles.
