The show’s title refers to a concept used in psychology to describe the devastating result for humans of long-term lack of physical contact. 

Touch is the primary way we communicate our needs. The body knows. The body remembers. The play addresses this issue and initiates discussion. It is a laboratory of the need for touch and the human condition in everyday life, where we become DISCONNECTED from ourselves. We are looking for answers to the question: how to deal with the lack of intimacy in today’s world? Is it still possible to hear the inner voice – to trust the primal CALL and return to nature – to the roots, to trust the power of intuition?  These questions are particularly relevant today, in a post-pandemic world where isolation and distance have become the norm.

Program Partners: San Diego State University (foreign strategic partner), ArtTrakcja Foundation, Polish Cultural Institute New York, Polish Consulate in Los Angeles, Polish Embassy in Mexico.

The performance, co-produced by Teatr Polski in Wrocław and the ArtTrakcja Foundation, was directed by American dancer, choreographer and contemporary dance educator Joe Alter. The co-organizer is National Institute of Music and Dance within the framework of its own programme “Choreographic Orders 2021”, financed by the Ministry of Culture, National Heritage and Sport.
