my dance, your touch

Craved, tender, awkward, invited, reciprocated, unsatisfactory, healing, hesitant, loaded or needy - touch, or the lack of it, powerfully impacts our lived experiences.

Drawing upon research that outlines how physical touch affects our behavioural, emotional and biological development as people, Clinkard and his cast have utilised a series of improvised tasks where all performed movement is crafted by the touch of another.
