Importance of Touch and 5th Anniversary Launch Party

Importance of Touch is a sites specific work by Sandra Atkinson (in collaboration with dancers). This short work explores the notion of human connection through touch in all mediums in an age of technology. Investigating whether we as a society are more comfortable with touch technology rather than the human touch. We play with reaction, intention and connection through movement and music.
