Works: Vera Tussing


T-Dance is a piece exploring touch and connection. How does tactility, with all its symbolic power, fragility and humour attain meaning? How are we connected even when separated by distance, time or context? How do we touch without touching?

Four dancers explore empathy and physical memory, questioning the limits of the body, and the mind’s connections. Without ever leaving their seats, the audience are called to inhabit the same imaginative space as the performers, in an invitation to participate in an empathetic, imagined touch.
