Craved, tender, awkward, invited, reciprocated, unsatisfactory, healing, hesitant, loaded or needy - touch, or the lack of it, powerfully impacts our lived experiences. Drawing upon research that outlines how physical touch affects our behavioural, cultural, emotional and biological development as people, Theo and his cast have utilised a series of improvised tasks, where all performed movement is crafted by the touch of another.
My Dance, Your Touch was created for Transitions Dance Company, the post graduate company at Trinity Laban.
"The group supported each other, catapulted each other around the space and moved as a pack,
finishing with two dancers remaining in furry bear-like onesies,
nuzzling and curiously exploring each other in a charmingly tender but primal duet."
