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.
