In a landscape of palpable textures, performers Rachel Tess and Benoît Lachambre navigate the link between inner body and tangible object and animating the inanimate through an exploration of the senses in These are bodies, These are motions, This is the place. Skin becomes canvas, bodies become abstracted, glimpses of the recognizable are sometimes present, and the byproduct of contact with the outer environment is an acoustic/rhythmic transmission of the sensuous. Letting be, being with, and sensing the profundity of silence allows the performers to refer unobtrusively to the complexities of human relationships.
