an innovative interactive performance where visual art meets physical theatre. the gravity field is a living canvas. the multi-layered dynamics that the living canvas brings forth engage the audience to be participants as well. touched & painted by the audience, ulrich gottlieb improvises a poetic mixture of movements in this sculptural performance from his practices in dance, martial art and physical theatre. concealing the performing body with textiles, people are invited to make painting marks directly onto the living canvas, instigating its changing movements and shapes on the canvas landscape.

#touch is creation in motion, make art touchable and an experience. it is always delightful to see those spirits, the maturity in the child and the child in grown ups.
