“Two dancers, an intimate setting and audience.
A relationship is created in front of your eyes from close proximity, near misses, adjustments and responses. How does touch (or lack of it) become a marker of how a relationship develops and what is the nature of this relationship?
Why is it that when we are deprived of one thing, everything else becomes so prominent, so important?”.
The dancers and audience both wonder if touch will come.
Left to unfold before them in that place, in that moment.“
Dancers: Kimberley Harvey & Robert Hesp

However, Jose was also interested in the deprivation of sound. So, as part of the audience would see everything, but equipped with ear defenders and ear plugs, would hear very little. Thus, leaving them receptive to sound vibrations and the heightened state of their other senses…
The duet was reworked and performed again in March 2016 as part of Swallowsfeet Festival at The Old Market Theatre down in Brighton.
