If skin is the outer limit of bodily touch, will redefining its porous character increase its receptive capacity? Mines and Marrow unfolds as a tale that alters the realm of internal touch, from inside out, as above so below. A set invoking the heritage of protoscience, activated through narration and movement, to unclog the surface and in ltrate the pores. It is a choreography of tactile chemistry to open up and eventually stretch the sensory boundaries of the body.
