Wasted Skin by Ivgi&Greben returns to De Harmonie. The sensation of being touched is a necessity of life – you remember that you exist tangibly. Hunger for skin; is what this craving for physical intimacy is called. Right now, after the pandemic, this craving is recognisable for everyone. But there’s more: the openness of physical contact is also affected by the physical distance & apparent perfection of digital images and communication. What effect does this have on us?

In WASTED SKIN, the dancers depict the effect of physical proximity and distance on feelings & behaviour. It is about wanting to regain social and physical openness. We see a stage with zones of merciless light and nurturing darkness. The dancers try to bridge the alienation and the mutual distance with ritualistic sequential movements. Instinctively, they are attracted to the warmth of another person's skin. They dance for their lives and yet the safety of the group can suddenly turn into an acute threat. The choreography of this new piece celebrates the beauty and power of body language. The piece is built up with contrasting parts that can end or start abruptly. Ivgi&Greben magnify the longing and loneliness with a whimsical hot/cold mix – emotionless, sometimes mechanical – to make these feelings even more tangible for the audience.
