SQUEEZE lets you breathe, smell, and see the multiple dimensions and potential of massage therapy. This ancestral practice is taken out of the treatment room and expressed in a social dance show in a performance space. Driven by haptic desire and anatomical curiosity, five performers massage, press, shake, and stretch each other’s body tissues, the thick textiles scattered around the space, and the interstices between solid materials. These actions give rise to ephemeral sculptural constellations imbued with pleasure/pain and tension/relaxation that dissolve in space. Together, the alternating sounds of electronic music and nature recordings, the costumes, set design, and choreography suggest that massage could and should spread into other spheres of everyday life, such as clubbing or hiking.
