How can it not be fantastic to be touched?

Short film about Touch from IMC research project

2020.12.09 | Anne-Mette Pedersen

Before our current communal default of physical distance, an IMC research project investigating hospitals as relational spaces through movement improvisation and ethnography, brought together international performing artists and academics in Aarhus over two days in May 2019 to explore and discuss ideas.

Some of the reflections from the research days are brought together in a short film about Touch.

The film is produced by Marie Hallager Andersen and is part of the project: Fieldwork in the Body. Investigations of hospital environments between anthropology and somatic movement. The project and research days were funded by a IMC Seed Funding grant.
