"The title, "From Skin to Skin", reflects on the messages of the piece. It's a conversation around touch, physical contact, need for embraces and intercourse, and fear of being touched by a stranger. Ultimately, it reflects upon the main problem of modern society where people avoid touching, tenderness, physical contact. In the end, "From Skin to Skin" came out to be beautiful, frank, pure and very smart. So many times I've heard at festivals in Russia and abroad: "in our work we explore…" - as it is custom now, we don't dance, we don't narrate, but we explore! Well, yes, of course, doing so without reading even a dozen of any serious books… But here I suddenly agreed with this definition, although no one declared it. Yes, a delicate study of your fears, complexes, deep desires, urgent needs… And to the dancers of Provincial Dances Theatre — Bravo!"
