Kate McIntosh has an ongoing curiosity to bodily involve an audience, and to imagine a social space where individuals might explore their own agency as well as a communality. In Many Hands wades further into these experiences.
With In Many Hands Kate McIntosh dives into the tactile and the multi-sensory, inviting the audience to test, touch, listen, search and sniff.
