When was the last time you felt safe and free in your own body? A response to a year of collective upheaval and the human costs of 'pushing on', Tactility Studies: Hold to Reset is an invitation to audiences to open up their bodies as sites and spaces for performance – to be soft, to wobble, to stretch, and uncoil.

The programme will unfold in three parts: mini-workshops that invite you to hold space and care for your own body; durational performances that pay attention to our collective bodies; and an experiential installation where anyone can sit and spend time with other human, object and plant bodies.

If you're feeling the weight of aches you've absorbed, or reflecting on the callouses that have grown over the skin of your heart, we hope that this is a reminder – where there is tension, there can be release.

Tactility Studies: Hold to Reset is an iteration of Tactility Studies (2018-ongoing), a long-term performance project jointly manifested by theatre and dance artists Chong Gua Khee and Bernice Lee. Since 2018, Tactility Studies has been incubated at and supported by Dance Nucleus, Singapore.
