TENOME - Eyes On Hand.


This new work performed in-the-round, is based on a mythical blind humanoid creature that sees through the palms of its hands, derived from Japanese urban legend.

EDIFICE dance theatre draws on the notion of ‘seeing’ through touch, flesh contact and intuition to explore the importance of meaningful, physical human connection. Combining the flow of Contact improvisation and the rhythms, dynamics and attack of ballroom, four dancers discover a sensual and mysterious exchange of movement heightening their sense of ‘sight’ through touch.
