Event Description

Tactile Sensations is a dance performance that investigates the meaning and intimacy of touch and its social construction: the connection to memory and human attachment, emotion, desire, rejection.

How and why do people touch each other? How is touch initiated between people? What is the meaning of touch?

This performance stages the sensitive relationship between a man and a woman.

 

The overall theme is enhanced by the interactive experience of producing and altering the sound and lights via the digital treatment of data coming from the contact between two bodies.

The exchange happens when the two dancers touch each. This investigation of touch within the performance is augmented and made more clearly perceptible to the audience by adding the aural and visual sense in that each moment of touch (dancer-dancer) – according to the various meanings of the touch graded according to which part of the dancers body touches or is touched – produces a specific sound and variations in lights. This augmentation of the sense of touch by associating sound and light thus induces, enhances and stimulates the senses and makes the audience acutely aware of the multiple meanings of bodily human interaction which in daily life nowadays are often suppressed, subconscious or ignored.
