Life through Touch and Pleasure
(Self awareness, self touch, pleasure)
Our sense of touch is present before the sense of sight develops and our skin plays a crucial role in the relationship we have with ourselves, with the environment and with the way we relate to others. It’s at the same time our limit and a place of communication. In this blind journey we will focus on touch, smell and taste, starting on our own, touching with curiosity our body and then exploring slowly the surroundings to end up meeting the others.
