TOUCH

Kyra Jean Green

TOUCH is a dance film that takes place in an imagined future: where for unmentioned reasons, humans have been living without physical touch for a very long time. We witness our characters interact with a simple mechanical device in a large, private space.This is in order to experience the touch of another human being, for the first time in the new physically distant future.
