Skin Hunger at Stone Nest

Skin Hunger

11 - 22 November 2020

Stone Nest is excited to announce that we are partnering with Dante or Die on Skin Hunger - a new socially distanced performance installation, funded by Arts Council England.

Skin Hunger interrogates the power of touch - an aspect of humanity that so many of us didn’t realise we vitally needed until it was restricted. Three performers swathed in plastic; three intimate, one-on-one experiences, directed by Daphna Attias. Pioneering writers Ann Akin, Tim Crouch and Sonia Hughes have created compelling monologues that explore the fundamental role that touch plays within our lives. Skin Hunger promises a powerful live theatre experience and a unique moment of reflection and intimacy, whilst so many are starved of touch.

New Movement Collective


15 - 24 July 2013



Inspired by Homer's epic poem 'The Odyssey', New Movement Collective present a unique promenade performance within one of London's most iconic disused buildings.

Dance, architecture, animation and interactive light technologies combine to create a tapestry of exploration and adventure.  With the freedom to create a journey of your choice, movement, structure, and live music draw a path around the striking spaces of this disused former chapel.

NEST was commissioned by Stone Nest to mark a new chapter in the building's history.
