David Herrera Performance Company brings its 7th season full evening dance piece TOUCH to Z Space premiering on April 2-4, 2015. Lead by Latino choreographer David Herrera.

TOUCH is inspired by the current events surrounding U.S. immigration laws, reform, and deportations and is at its core an examination of survival and perseverance in keeping heritage and physical bond intact in the face of geo-politics. This new work takes an in-depth look at the emotional and physical demands a person experiences as a result of forced separation via deportations in particular the effects it has on the family unit, child and parent relationship. Though stories of immigration are well known, forced separation of children and their parents is not and through TOUCH the company sheds light and visibility to this ever present but “hidden” phenomenon.
