Even before the Corona crisis, director Marcel Schwald and choreographer Chris Leuenberger were interested in bodies that must not come into contact with others. The traditional image of men, for example, must not always be suspected of being considered homosexual. From an early age, boys are discouraged from exchanging tender platonic touches with other boys. The American author Mark Greene speaks in this context of a "touch isolation".

In their latest work, Schwald/Leuenberger take up the physicality and behavior of men and reflect on their own masculinity based on their personal role models. They use the world-leading American image production industry as a foil to reveal more disarmed, negotiable masculinities. With three American dancers, they make trained physicalities and the stories behind them the dance-documentary center of their work. How freely do men deal with their needs for touch?
