Rorschach Touch

2017 - 2020

Rorschach Touch is an exploration of perception in the context of gendered bodies, but with a desire to move beyond gendered constraints. It hopes to ask the viewer - "How do you see?" It allows and invites you to get close to the performers by really leaning in, but it also offers a sensory experience evoked by movement and touch. It is a deeply personal work and treats the body and its conditions with sensitivity, humor and intense openness.
