How did you feel when you first looked into the eyes of your child? What did they think about you? How much time do you spend with children in your life? What do they learn from you and what can you learn from them?

With a cast of two professional performers dancing with their own children, and a community cast of families from the local area, Touch explores the themes of connection, intimacy and physical play between parents and their children. People of all ages are invited to witness this thought-provoking dance performance, which investigates the multitude of relationships between adults and children in an intimate environment.

Upcoming performances: 

In November 2020, we were awarded funding by Arts Council England to adapt this project for a range of potential COVID-responsive scenarios.
