How often do men get to express their affection through non-sexual long lasting touch towards other people? In this piece, a group of eight people comprised of dancers and musicians are exploring platonic touch. They are  observing each other and allowing themselves to trust and be trusted in the physical realm. Using nothing but space, movement and touch, they are putting fear aside and creating emotional human connections. The VR technology enables a more close and intimate experience and allows one to feel surrounded by comfort.
Platonic Touch is the result of the collaboration between local alternative R’n’B artist EDSUN and Luxembourg-based VR start-up realab, who teamed up in order to create this new immersive musical experience. Join us for this exciting new project which will be exclusively premiered at the Sonic Visions Music Conference 2017!

Meet the makers of “Platonic Touch” during their interview earlier that day!
