The Palm of Your Hand #2 is a dance of touch. 

The work exists in the active and tactile encounter between performer and audience - in their tacit agreement and understanding.

Arranged in an ellipse, the audience form the bounds of the theatrical space. It is a journey that, by definition, performer and audience discover and create together.
