“Why didn’t you kiss Lisa today” is a theatrical performance in which 3 characters disappear and get stuck in a kind of Bermuda triangle. The first character Lisa utters the desire to be kissed. Because this desire is not fulfilled, the second character Livia takes up this case by involving the third male character (who has no name) and accusing him of not having kissed Lisa as if this is some kind of dereliction of duty. When Lisa realizes nothing happens, she indicates that is the moral obligation of one of the other characters to take responsibility but she receives an answer that is totally besides the point.

This opening scene is the start of a Kafkaesque odyssey in which the characters are in constant confrontation with each other, to hurt each other – emotionally or physically – or to rob each other – materially or not materially or to accuse of and charge each other with a crime – emotionally or physically. The dehumanization reaches so far that in the end no moral limits exist and identity and personality are lost. Thus the piece ends symptomatically as it has started, but the question to be kissed now sounds like a nightmare more than ever – the question is not a question anymore, the question has become a command.
