(don’t) touch me by State of Flux Theatre
(don’t) touch me is a bold and uplifting piece of physical theatre which explores our relationship to human contact in the modern world. As nine strangers enter the space, they each step into a pair of running shoes and begin a rollercoaster journey through a series of physical scenarios. Communicating through movement alone this daring ensemble push the boundaries of physical contact in order to be understood.
