Touch connects, contains and stimulates.

We are all touched hundreds of times each day, by loved ones by strangers and by inanimate objects. Before our eyes develop outside the womb, we learn the world through touch.

Researched in nursery settings with children aged 0-3 through open-play workshops Touch reaffirms the power of physical contact in the digital age.

Inspired by the worrying trend of ‘no touch’ policies within some schools and children’s centres, Touch is made at a time of increased awareness of sexual misconduct and transparency.

Touch premieres in Autumn 2019 and is available to tour nationally and internationally to theatres, non-theatre and early-years settings from Spring 2020.
