This is a performance exploring touch and connection. How touch connects us: different types of touch, different types of connectionIt springs from a desire to touch and to be touched. To explore what touch means, and how we are connected. To experience one’s ability to be affected by what one perceives. Four dancers explore empathy and physical memory, questioning the limits of the body, and the mind’s connections. Without ever leaving their seats, the audience members are called to inhabit the same imaginative space as the performers in an invitation to experience empathetic, imagined touch.
