To be Safe in our Skin

We find one another in the wake of this pandemic in an unspoken dialogue of touch - our skin - tone, texture and colour, grazing and juxtaposed against The Bentway’s architectural landscape of concrete, corten steel, wood and earth. Our gathering is proof that we were there, together, making visible the connection that becomes invisible when we are gone. This ephemerality will live in the digital capture.

 

As a responsive creator investigating the power of Touch, choreographer Karen Kaeja is curious about what we can touch and cannot touch, and what is seen and unseen in public territory. In a raw live-stream performance that is intimate and up close, the presence and harmony of three womxn of different identities address public safety.
