Screens loom between us, corporeal communication in space is eliminated, spoken language gains importance. To what extent is proximity possible under these circumstances? As a performative livestream, Human Touch is an attempt to disrupt the emotional and visual limitations of virtual encounters. The webcam as a digital eye is integrated into the dance. Out of the longing for human touch and intuitive movement, we use dance improvisation to explore the way our bodies engage with each other in unintentional mindfulness. Juxtaposing direct physicality, the dance is cocooned by oscillating sounds and dialogue. The current pandemic situation turns a magnifying glass on human physical contact. We ask ourselves what happens when corporeal proximity becomes a sin. Do we make ourselves guilty when we dance?
