Contact is a poetic performance combining music, song, dance, speech and sign language and exploring contact between human bodies (musician - dancer), between communicators (spoken language - sign language), as well as between cultures, by focusing on the symbolism of language and reflecting the respect that an individual owes to another during interaction. All song lyrics will be simultaneously translated into sign language.

The performance brings together Dancer and Choreographer Pierre Geagea who was born deaf and has discovered his own way to freely express his emotions and his thoughts through his body and hands, and Georg Kroneis, Austrian musician, singer and songwriter playing viola da gamba, who's music is based on a classical repertoire translated into our modern context.
