Interdisciplinary exploration of touch, movement and drawing
Genre: Durational performance
Our bodies are the “you are here” X on a map in a vast wilderness of “others”. We have a plethora of languages, but amongst the mud and blood and spit and cum, touch is where life starts. In the process of creating this piece, we explored touch, intimacy and the haptic sense as a way of manifesting drawings and maps. In Støt, touch leaves an abstract but also sometimes concrete map of a human body across space. There’s an eye, an eyebrow, a testicle, a spine, a long doodely line connecting two dots, a sensual moment suspended in time crystallized in space.
