Skin is a container. It protects our bodies’ intricate inner architecture from burning sun and penetrating cold. Skin is resilient and regenerative but fragile too. From its delicate nerve endings we derive the sensation of touch, pain, pleasure and gentle caress. As we age the texture of its canvas deepens with lines, folds, stretch marks and scars. But beyond those physical properties, skin is a vessel for the memories we collect as we move through the world. Beneath its smooth texture emotions and experiences exist in the intangible ether.

To Carry / To Hold celebrates the power of the human body and the stories it holds. This new commission by choreographer Liesel Zink has been specially created for Mature Artists Dance Experience (MADE) – the groundbreaking company that embraces the experience, skill and strength that older dancers have developed over their careers.

Zink’s choreography makes connections between the mundane routines of everyday life and the transformative moments that alter its course. To Carry / To Hold intertwines past, present and future in an exploration of the stories that connect us across time, space and generations.
