In Kissing A Fool, we speculatively dive into George Michael’s psyche at the lowest point in his life. After the death of his lover, Anselmo Feleppa, and losing a high-profile legal battle with Sony Music, the pop-icon feared he’d never write another song. In his despair, George awakens the Fool from deep within, a familiar clown companion whose only intelligence is play.
Join us on this musical journey into the tumultuous creative process of one of the greatest artists of a generation, and witness the transformation of grief into transcendent creativity through song.
