Touch Me Here is an evening-length solo performance created and performed by Seattle-based choreographer Peggy Piacenza with an original live score performed by cellist Scott Bell.
A luminary performer and a unique choreographic voice in Seattle’s dance community, Piacenza’s 25-year career includes her own evening-length works as well as star turns with Pat Graney Company, 33 Fainting Spells, Deborah Hay, Dayna Hanson and others. A very personal departure from her past work, Touch Me Here is a movement memoir in which Piacenza excavates her own lived experience to connect with audiences human to human.
Piacenza straddles humor, fantasy, intimacy and sorrow in a multi-disciplinary solo inspired not only by her own life and career but also by Lotan Baba, the rolling saint of India, and Nights of Cabiria, Fellini’s cinematic tale of a prostitute in search of love. In Touch Me Here, a bracingly vulnerable Piacenza guides audiences in a hyper-human search of love, peace and profound understanding.
