Love and physical contact – on the day of inclusion on 5 May 2019

Every person has a need for security and love. After physical contact and sexuality. People with disabilities often have problems getting physical contact and sexuality. They do get body contact during body care, but that is not the same as body contact and sexuality.

But where does physical contact begin, where does sexuality begin? When people with disabilities don’t get physical contact or sexuality, they look for a balance. What is this balance? Watch films – look people in the face. Men look at women, but women also look at men. Every part of the body has a different erotic charisma. Which part of the body has which charisma? What significance do the individual body parts have in eroticism? This performance is explored and shown by two performers. Different parts of the body are photographed and underlaid with a text. During the first course of the photo series, the viewer sees photos spoken with a text. In the second part, the theme is presented with dance and pantomime.

The performers want to make clear how diverse the body can be erotic. Erotic is not easy to generalize. Erotic the detail must be considered. What does this mean for people with and without disabilities? After the performances, Roland Walter offers the audience a conversation. The project will be premiered on Inklusionstag on 5 May 2019. Further performances will take place at home and abroad until April 2020.
