Communication is key to existing within the human society, and in my opinion, touch is one of the most profound and important means of relating to one another. As an artist, actor and educator part of my performative work is the exploration and deep study of the ways in which touch affects and transforms emotions. Touch is a form of deeper listening. In working with children and people of all ages I find that touch is a delicate and deep way of saying 'I hear you. I see you.'
