SIOBHAN O’LOUGHLIN (of Broken Bone Bathtub) collaborates with relational artist Dennissa Young and designer Brendan Leahy in an ongoing remote series to audiences globally over zoom that has been running since March 17th.  Please Don’t Touch The Artist is an extrovert’s attempt to soothe feelings of confusion, isolation, and uncertainty with performance art fueled by intimacy, warmth and connection. With each performance, the artists guide the audience on a journey of exploring and understanding human contact. From a heartbreaking oil change to a romantic-comedy-romp through flirting with a fellow film student over zoom, Please Don’t Touch encourages you to resist the urge to go inward and despair.

Shows are twice a week (pending the team’s timeframe and events), and will be a mix of premieres and reduxes from the course of productions both workshopped and developed since mid-March.

“Thank you for bringing community to these lonely islands. We need this right now.” 

“One of the most memorable, theatrical, human experiences we’ve ever had.”

“PDT lives right in the overlap between storytelling, group therapy, and intimate storytelling.”

“Thank you, Siobhan, Brendan, and Dennissa. I will now be imagining a beautiful speakeasy in my building’s mailroom.”

 

“You all are a magical dream that feeds the extrovert part of my ambiversion.”

In solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement (and to accommodate the off-line activist work of the team), all of our performances have been moved to evenings. We support protests, phone calls, donations, volunteering, and conscious consumerism all day every day (and, of course, into the night). For those who are home in the evenings, we will be there for you to come together for creative activation.

See you in the streets and in the zoom room.
