Touchscape, A Striptease of Emotions
by James Scruggs
Directed by Mark Rayment
A work in progress showing at Dixon Place, following a residency at
The Baryishikov Arts Center.
Work in Progress Premiere 2010 Dixon Place, NYC
Touchscape is a series of monologs exploring the many ways men
interact with each other from friendship to intimacy and incest.
It is an exploration of the celebration, observation, and abhorrence, of intimate, random, unusual, fringe and socially unacceptable male to male contact. It is a raw, close-up emotional snapshot of the sensual life of several contemporary urban men.
