A woman and two men explore the workings and effects of empathy. Does seeing, as neuroscience claims, really become feeling? And what is “contact”? This supremely sparkling dance piece turns a potentially abstract idea into something that is a pure joy to watch, and into a journey through sometimes highly underrated chapters of contemporary dance history.
