Following on from last year’s single chapter pilot, we are proud to present the full version, as intended, of Within Touching Distance. Exploring the fragile nature of life and the comfort of human connection, we are taken from childhood through to old age, exploring the nature of touch as it is experienced by an infant, adult and a person in palliative care. Using embodiment in virtual reality and the ritual of the mundane everyday task of getting ready for bed, the participants are taken through human life cycles, highlighting how our experiences change the way we interact, at a sensory level, with the world.
Each performance slot is designed for one attendee only, so if you are attempting to buy multiple tickets, they need to be for separate time slots.
Attendees must arrive 15 minutes prior to performance slot. Due to the restricted capacity for this performance, tickets will be re-allocated to the standby queue if attendees do not arrive within 15 minutes of performance slot.
Please note, this performance involves lying on a bed and physical touch, and there will be an opportunity to a discuss any concerns with the front of house team on arrival. This performance also involves wearing a VR headset.
This performance is not suitable for children under 12.
The whole experience is wheelchair accessible with modification. For additional access questions/requests, please email email@example.com.
