SKIN, the original new work by choreographer Sarah Fdili Alaoui and filmmaker Tamara Erdé – questions the body’s consciousness, the skin’s sensitivity and otherness.
A technological device composed of physiological sensors records the two dancers’ muscular activities and heartbeats in real time.
As a second skin, these sensors of proximity and touch reveal an intimate aspect of the two performers and provide new boundaries for their bodies in an augmented space.
