After several years of working together on various small projects, I teamed up with Tania Coke of tarinainanika (a corporeal mime unit based in Japan) to create a new show. That show was Touch Me Not.
The process was physically driven. Naoe Kawamoto (the other performer) and I would improvise scenarios or moments physically which Tania would then hone and shape into scenes. It was a demanding process, but I appreciated the fusing of the way that I was trained to work as a performer and a theatre-maker with Tania’s Corporeal Mime sensibilities.
