Vera Tussing : The Palm of Your Hand
This is a dance of touch. The work exists in the active, tactile, engaged negotiation between performer and audience - in their tacit agreement and understanding. Arranged in an ellipse, the audience themselves form the bounds of the theatrical space. This is a journey that, by definition, performer and audience discover and create together.
After premiering the first version of The Palm of Your Hand 2015, we are now touring The Palm of Your Hand # 2 - a re-creation commissioned by the Human Body Project. This re-creation reimagines the piece by working with a group of blind and partially sighted people to help make the work communicate beyond sight.
