Based on the banned novel by Manuel Puig, Kiss of the Spider Woman is an intricate game of cat and mouse between two men forced to share a cell in a Latin American jail. Valentin is a tortured revolutionary whom the warden is determined to break; Molina an anguished romantic, condemned for his homosexuality and tempted by betrayal. Written in exile from his native Argentina, Kiss is a searing, erotic, and haunting look at oppression and the triumph of intimacy. Infused with tango and flamenco choreography of Misha Wyatt and directed by Stephen Muterspaugh, Kiss is a bold exploration for our times.
