Bodies getting closer, cross each other, overlap, disturb and move away.

In times of distance and isolation, a reflection of touching and being touched is provoked. Protecting oneself from too much closeness has moved from a personal experience to the focus of perception in society as a whole. Established codes for a so-called appropriate physical contact were irritated and set in motion.

How can we touch without crossing borders? In the permanent exploration of the fear of too much physical contact and the need for closeness, of protection and vulnerability, of retreat and departure, a choreography of points of contact emerges. A morbid loneliness arises in the fusion, in the isolation common forms are formed, in watching a haptic experience is evoked.

In the performance HAPTO, the artist network systemrhizoma pursues an interdisciplinary approach in the spaces between dance, puppet theater and visual arts.
