In her last book before she died Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick made a case for Touching Feeling... this performance is another one.
Motivated by tasteless vulgarity - a cheap thrill even, this performance dares to give up on any valuable attempt at creating a meaningful experience, and in doing so may even risks giving up on performance itself.
Touching Feeling is an adapted version of an earlier piece 'Performance for a Stranger' developed in 2005
