CAN TOUCH THIS / Tanzpakt Stadt-Land-Bund

Dance theatre

from 12 years

Premiere: 21th January 2020


Tanzpakt Stadt-Land-Bund

To touch is provocation. To touch is beautiful. To touch is inappropriate. To touch is vital. Culture and traditions determine whether a touch is pleasant or embarrassing. Or are we the ones who decide that?
We want to be seen, we want to be loved, we want to be wanted. But please don’t touch!
Five actors examine this dilemma of modern life: We long to be touched, and yet we also want to be safe from harm. The performers allow closeness and lose control. They push their own and others’ boundaries, they touch and experience lust. They blunder and stumble over cultural barriers, cause embarrassment – and then they gently take the audience back to a safe place.
A cooperation between Theater Strahl and performing:group Cologne.
Theater Strahl is a partner in the initiative “Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum Berlin”.
With funding from TANZPAKT Stadt-Land-Bund, supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media, the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, and the NRW Landesbüro Freie Darstellende Künste.
Performances take place as part of the PURPLE Dance Festival for a Young Audience (19 to 26 January 2020).

The “Offensive Tanz für junges Publikum Berlin” (Dance for a young audience) is a joint project by Theater Strahl with PURPLE Dance Festival for a Young Audience, Tanzkomplizen and Theater o.N. We share ideas and collaborate as organisations, with the objective of building bridges between the two genres of dance theatre and youth theatre. Together we develop strategies to bring dance theatre to a young audience, based on which each partner then develops their own plays independently. Dance, just like music, is a universal language. Dance is immediate and authentic. Dance is the ideal medium for a young audience.
