« In this inexpressible world we met
Two straight lines on a zigzag
fighting for a Touch»
Our skin is an encounter and interaction place in-between ourselves and everything around us. It is our window of contact with anything outside of us and only through this encounter we can get to know ourselves. Because of the skin and through it, our whole body can listen, receive stimuli, and inform us about where and how we are doing, how we move in space, how we feel and what we think.
In what ways do I touch?
How do I accept the touch?
How does the touch or its absence affect me?
Do I allow what is happening around me to “touch” me?
Focusing on the Now of touch, we will discover that as a physical experience, Touch enriches our mental and spiritual dimension.
In this two-hour experiential workshop, we will discuss the developmental, relational, and social dimension of touch and we will explore through specific exercises and improvisations the experience of Touch, as a way of communicating with the world, as a collective memory, as desire and creation.
