Lap Dance2. Bodies at Play Or the Horror of Intimacy

Dance professionals learn many things, yet too little about the gaze of the audience that is closely related to questions of intimacy and distance. How do the senses of close and remote perception play the instrument of contact? This workshop explores the whole spectrum of these difficult times for the live arts: How to create intimacy, if technology is replacing the stage? How to keep distance, when the audience is condensed into one single costumer?
