A research on perceptions,  on touch and sight, but also a work about risk, courage, vulnerability, challenge, intimacy, authenticity. A box of aluminum 4x4x2 with only two entrances: one to watch, the other to touch. Watch | Touch is a series of solo performance for a solo spectator invited to question and choose the only option: is to get in touch or to look at the performer in a space inaccessible to others. The performance calls into question the very concept of dance historically conceived to be looked at,  but also perhaps the most “bodily” among the arts, the body with its physical is the chore. The duration of the solos is variable (5′-7 ‘). The performance is accompanied for its entire duration  is by a set of live electronics. [Gabriella Riccio]
