What does it mean to enter a theatre room? To be part of a performance, whether as performer on stage or as guests in the audience? To be exposed with the charged tension on a scale from successful to failed? To indulge into the crazy mixture of adrenaline and expectations, to produce authenticity and consume fake?
Three performers are ready. They set everything in motion: physically, vocally and emotionally, in order to reach their audience with artistic means. They want to reach the musculus arrector pili – they go below the skin. Not with the one big drama, but with different performative exercise units. They jump into their tracksuits and get going as touch machines. They overspend theirselves up to physical and emotional exhaustion. What for? To touch you. missingdots works in this constellation for the first time. The artistic team goes from sense of touch with discussions about touch to production strategies, that create a goosebump moment.
