On the issue of touch, Piel questions the implicit prohibitions or permissions that form part of our social codes. About what is the done thing, not done, consensual or prohibited. The distances to be respected. Which parts of the body can be touched or not. How does the quality of relationships and physical contact influence how we perceive our own body and that of others? What is the place of touch in families, friendships, social relations, or with lovers, and what are the physical states that result from it?
A carnal dance, where touch appears at the same time protective, invasive, tender, sensual and destructive.
