The palm of your hand #2

The Palm of Your Hand - By Vera Tussing & Team

The palm of your hand #2

Vera Tussing

In 2015 Vera Tussing premiered at STUK with The palm of your hand. It became a signature work whereby, in a disarming manner and with ‘touch’ as a guide, she had audiences up on their feet dancing. Upon the invitation of the Human Body Project she reworked this performance for the blind and partially sighted. In which ways can a performance still communicate when we eliminate the visual aspect? In many ways, she hereby returns to the essence embodied in the original version. This is a dance of physical contact. The work manifests in active, tactile and engaged negotiations between performers and the audience – in their tacit agreement and mutual understanding. Stood in an ellipse form, the audience itself creates the parameters of the theatrical space. It’s a journey the dancers and the audience shape and discover together.
