Touch as Language, Language as Touch with Dr. Abbie Garrington

In this talk Dr. Abbie Garrington explores the relationship of touch, identity and language as they might relate to dance practice. The talk references haptics, mountaineering, the relationship of mental health and sensory experiences, and the early 20th-century interest in tactile experience, including the Manifesto of Tactilism.

This talk was part of Crossing Borders 2016 and was presented in partnership with London Contemporary Dance School.
