About this event

Skin Hunger

“If you wanted to hold me. If you wanted to hold me. Hold me and tell me it’s okay”

Three intimate, one-on-one experiences with three performers swathed in plastic.

Skin Hunger is about the power of touch - a vital aspect of humanity that so many of us didn’t realise we needed until it was restricted.

Daphna Attias directs three compelling monologues written by Ann Akin, Tim Crouch and Sonia Hughes which explore the fundamental role that touch plays in our lives, with refreshing humour and insight.

Skin Hunger is a powerful live theatre experience set in a hidden chapel in London’s West End reflecting on intimacy and connection, after so many of us have been starved of human contact.

Running Time: 60 minutes
Dates: 15 – 20 June, 22 – 27 June 2021.
For BSL interpreted shows on 19 June, book via a separate Eventbrite page here.
Times: 1.30pm / 2.45pm / 4pm / 6.30pm / 7.45pm / 9pm - 6 entries daily, for only 3 audience members per entry
