SIX WOMEN STANDING IN FRONT OF A WHITE WALL, By Little Dove Theatre Art
‘Six Women Standing in Front of a White Wall’, an interactive Butoh-inspired performance installation that investigates the effect of TOUCH or NO TOUCH on a human being. Put simply, as per the title, six women stand in front of a white wall and respond truthfully, in all the extremities of human emotion, to the audiences every action… or inaction.
At the heart of this work lies the exploration of the physiological need of humans to touch and be touched. The relationship between touch and well-being is more than skin deep. From the moment of our inception as human beings, our tactile sense is being developed. We are pushed out, picked up and placed at our mother’s breast, and a bonding process between two individuals begins.
‘Six Women Standing in Front of a White Wall’ provides a space where audiences are free to relinquish the imposed social implications of touching strangers and allows the possibility for them to experience true and real connections with six different women – revealing ultimately that touching is an act of love, a way of communicating without words.
