will be perfomring in an evening of new choreography on November 2nd and 3rd in the Performance Space at the Dairy Center for the Arts and November 8th and 9th at the KRD Venue in Denver. All performances begin at 7:30pm. SKIN examines the questions: Why do we touch? How do we use touch to communicate and what ARE we saying when we do? Why do we long for human contact? How can touch be so universal and, at the same time, so uniquely intimate? What happens to the human body at the moment of touch? Our skin is our largest organ and our means of contact to anything that is not part of us. What is your skin holding in?
