The starting point for my project was an image which had a lot of emotional and sensual impact over me. In this image I saw the human living skin and how it changes with time, how it peels off and always regenerates. I started to ask myself what guards my skin, what does it guards in somebody else, what hidden emotions or needs are transmitted through skin and what’s the memory of my skin. I asked myself: what kind of movement answer brings the tactile stimulation? What kind of emotional responses I get in seeing certain images with the skin? How clearly can I communicate through touch? How can I bring with subtlety the images of change, time passing, and regeneration into a performance? I’m proposing a continuous dialogue between the sound, tactile sense and movement. Cristina Lilienfeld
