Touch
by Four Hands dance company
March 2020

I performed with my daughter Bella (aged 5) as part of the community cast in the Leeds performances of ‘Touch’ at The Holbeck and Yorkshire Dance.

Touch explores the themes of connection, intimacy and physical play between parents and their children. People of all ages are invited to witness this thought-provoking dance performance, which investigates the multitude of relationships between adults and children in an intimate environment.
