Mike O'Connor

A Touching Experience


Touch is a fundamental need. When we don’t get enough handshakes, hugs or sex, we can find alternative ways to stimulate the sense of touch. The workshop will have short practices to bring attention to what touches you; including self drawing, partner drawing, and sharing stories in small groups.  Different levels of intimacy are controlled by your preference and can privately be discussed in breakout rooms. Bring paper and pen.


Mike is a dancer, choreographer, somatic bodyworker and currently a PhD candidate at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, exploring movement as a tool to blur mind, body and environment. Working at the intersection of cognitive science and dance since 2011, his artistic work articulates human perception as performative tools, specifically empathy and metaphor as ways of communicating. He teaches creative practice workshops throughout Europe to university students and teams.

13:00 - 14:15 CET
