“Her work is frequently bold, challenging audiences to watch and think about dance out of traditional boxes, and this new solo extends that edginess.” – Melody Datz Hansen, Seattle Dances
Touch Me Here is multi-disciplinary movement memoir created and performed by Seattle-based choreographer Peggy Piacenza with an original live score performed by cellist Scott Bell. A luminary performer and a unique choreographic voice in Seattle’s dance community, Piacenza’s 25-year career includes her own evening length works as well as star turns with Pat Graney Company, 33 Fainting Spells, Deborah Hay, Dayna Hanson and others. A very personal departure from her past work, Touch Me Here is a movement memoir in which Piacenza excavates her own lived experience to connect with audiences human to human.
