Take This Touch Inside Your Body is a collection of performative practices and poems-as-scores that explore the permanence and accumulation of touch. The event makes visible how touch, words, and sound move through our bodies and leave their traces. The audience will witness poetic actions, words in unexpected places, and reflecting on touch in their own lives.
