Touch Score4_blue.jpg

This touch score is...

 

  • for one person, or more.

 

To go on this journey, you’ll need…

 

  • a sound-playing device (e.g. a phone or other device that allows you to move freely) + headphones 

  • an object that fits easily into the palm of your hand, or otherwise easily held.

  • a place to sit.

  • a space that surrounds you (your home) that you can move through.

 

Duration: 25 minutes


 

We will trace and retrace moments of grasping, clutching, manipulating with our hands, and eventually grow into moving, tracing and touching through our whole body.

Notes

 

This recording involves many direct and consciously picked references such as Tim Ingold's book ‘Lines’, a text by Filip Mattens: The sense of Touch: From Tactility to Tactile Probing from 2016, my Feldenkreis teacher Wendy Kann’s approach to teaching that is very present these days, but also many other voices, such as one of my long term collaborators, performers, teacher and occasional co-choreographer Ben McEwen, JS Rafaeli, Esse Vanderbruggen / (Both, Two), Anna Muchin, Anna Goette and many more.
