Touch connects, contains and stimulates. Touch is how we build relationships.
‘Touch’ is an improvised and interactive dance-show performed by four dancers and a DJ. Adults and children are offered the chance to watch, play and dance as the performers move delightfully and deftly to a live mixed music score.
A beautifully crafted, gentle and playful experience for adults and children that reaffirms the power of touch and dance in a digital age.
