About the show
July 2018 / Pontio, Bangor
An intriguing mixture of installation, performance and audience connection, this new work draws inspiration from the work of osteopath Julie Nioche and the testimonies of NHS staff members and patients.
Utilising a minimalistic set consisting of a large piece of paper covering a wall and stage, Touch is an invitation for people to connect through words. As the performers create a network of evocative words, the bare space is slowly transformed. The audience are invited to respond in turn with their own words, creating a unique piece of work for each performance.
Interactive and contemplative, Touch explorede 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.
