Think of a human touch you recently experienced.
How does it feel?
Which memories pop up while remembering it?
Presencia is a duet which deals with touch and lack of human touch. It explores softness and care of one person to the other, and travels through the memories and imaginations that are attached to such experiences.
Presencia is a continuation of a previous research made by May Zarhy in 2021, which produced a short solo for the dancer Ariel Gelbart called Ausencia. Ausencia was presented in Suzanne Dellal in Tel Aviv Dance Festival 2021.
