PREMIERE: Can touch this // performing:group & Theater Strahl // 29/01/20 // TanzFaktur Köln
Touch is provocation. Touch is beautiful. Touch is out of place. Touch is essential for survival. Cultures and traditions determine whether a touch is pleasant or embarrassing. Or is it us who determine that?
We want to be seen, we want to be loved, we want to be wanted. But please do not touch!
Five performers explore the dilemma of modern people: We long for touch and yet we want to be protected from injury. The dancers allow closeness and lose control. They test their own and other people’s limits, stumble over blunders, cultural boundaries and embarrassments and gently catch the audience again.
