Writer Sarah Butler, who leads the Elders Investigate programme of work, responds to intergenerational performance THE SPACE BETWEEN US which premiered in the Studio last week

SKIN

This is what holds us together.
This is what keeps us apart.
Let me unfold you,
one vertebra at a time.
Take my hand.
Meet my eye.
Pay attention.
Come close. Closer. Look.
We are so many bodies,
dancing to our own tunes.
We are breathing.
We are falling.
We are considering the end.
This is what keeps us apart.
This is what holds us together.
