Performance > Intimate Gestures

Intimacy as an idea or action evokes feelings of familiarity, closeness, trust and affection. Some may reserve it for those they feel closest to or are in a relationship with. Physical gestures of intimacy most often happen in familiar spaces of love, sex, family, friendships or the domestic. Occasionally patterns arise which break these conventions. Intimate Gestures is a one-on-one performance, a personal theater, that explores what motivates physical intimacy between strangers. What can we know of a body by seeing; what is confirmed through the touch?
