skin hunger

schwere reiter

Society is in a state of touch deprivation. Since the pandemic has taken hold of the world, "Don't touch!" is the order of the day and the body of the other person is a potential source of danger. Corona has turned the phenomenon known as "skin hunger" or "touch starvation" into a global mass experiment: What happens when there is no touch?

In her eponymous ensemble piece "skin hunger", Canadian choreographer Jasmine Ellis explores the effects of lack of touch, intertwining the live elements of dance and music with the narrative quality of radio. The project in its entirety is the live performance in Germany and a radio podcast by artist Johnny Spence in collaboration with CBC Canada's radio show "Ideas". Besides the thematic bracket - touch - both works also connect directly. Johnny Spence will create the sound of Jasmine Ellis' "skin hunger" from the interviews he collected for his podcast (with social workers/artists/scientists on the subject of "touch"), but at the same time elements and voices from the dance performance will also flow into the radio report, just as narratives from the podcast will be transformed into dance or stage text.
