This tactile piece of theatre draws inspiration from the work of osteopath Julie Nioche and the testimonies of NHS staff members and patients.
Osteopathy works on the principle that the wellbeing of an individual relies on their bones, muscles, ligaments and connective tissue all functioning smoothly together.
Interactive and contemplative, Touch will explore the importance of physical touch as part of patient’s care and treatment and the complex interconnecting networks of people surrounding someone’s journey from trauma to recovery.
Touch is being created by a powerhouse of international, national and local artists and organisations; National Theatre Wales, Llanrwst-based Migrations, French musician Alexandre Meyer and choreographer and dancer Julie Nioche, choreographers Filiz Sizanli and Mustafa Kaplan from Turkey, and a cast of dancers including Laura Dannequin, Angharad Harrop, Cai Tomos and Simon Whitehead.
