Thiseion, a theatre for the Arts


is it day or is it night?, the new choreographic work by Mariela Nestora / YELP danceco., focuses on the sense of touch. Touch is always in interaction with the other senses. It is directly linked to movement and highlights the body as a body µin process'.
The lack of touch during the recent experience of a pandemic was the point of departure for our research. In what way was the sense of time and touch redefined? How do we re-invent intimacy?
The choreographic composition explores touch less as gesture and more as a conviviality of bodies in interaction with materiality. It shifts the attention to micro-movements and emphasises the reversibility of touch: when one touches, one is touched at the same time. 
is it day or is it night? is an invitation to an experience that hopes to sensitise the body and stimulate tactile vision.
