Touché is the fruit of an exploration born from physical contact. Starting from the impersonal and unknown, a journey is unfolded step by step through all the facets of contact that we can experience, until reaching the most intimate caress. Each development of a subtle touch, culminates as a metaphor for the emotional adventure and play of any type of relation humans in between. From body to heart, from longing to loving. This living work shares the pleasure of being alive and taking advantage of any possibility to connect, uplift and celebrate the chance of the encounter. The touch becomes the axis, around which the surprise and the opportunity to involve the public in each presentation will turn. Touché unfolds its magic in the present conjunction between the two dancers, Manon and Pere completed with the live music of Pol. These three components of Touché will envelop all those people shown up to share the same space-moment.
