An explosive performance about the necessity of physical contact
Life begins and ends with touch. From our birth to the hands that carry us to our final resting place. In this era, physical contact has taken on a new meaning, as we have become more reliant on ourselves. As a result, the way we enter and maintain relationships seems to have changed forever as well. All while our need for connection through touch hasn’t diminished: it is perhaps the most essential form of communication.
In One Touch, risk, ego and rivalry take on new meaning in relation to trust and connection. Can you stay connected in this fast, individualistic world without physical contact? The three duets and group scenes in One Touch merge seamlessly and take the audience into acrobatic stories in which the dancers carry each other, balance on top of each other and melt into each other's arms.
"'Van Luijk is a sculptor who has already proven in previous pieces how simple light interventions elevate and give meaning to the relationship between space and body.'"
