“How does touch manifest in our bodies and what traces does it leave in an encounter?” André Uerba explores the different dimensions of touch, its properties, qualities and complexities.

Through deceleration, inhibition of the sense of sight and a kinetic and somatic approach to the body and its movement, André Uerba and the performers explore different ways to get to know and feel each other. Bodies that meet, coordinate and communicate non-verbally – opening a space that is understood as political – in an urgency to find spaces to care for the body, exploring listening zones which are not guided by the mind. André Uerba proposes a return to the body, to the pulse of nature.

Understood as a choreographic reflection that intertwines touch and proximity, this project is a research on touch that begun in 2019 in the frame of the Flutgraben Performances (1 Year Residency) and continued during the residency at radialsystem in 2021 (both in Berlin). “Um buraco do tamanho do teu toque” or “A hole the size of your touch” is an hybrid of research-performance that is expanded in this presentation at BoCA in October 2021.
