A Million Kisses to My Skin is a piece that tells us the joy of dancing and the jubilation felt by the performers on stage. David Dawson invents his own language from the classical vocabulary, focusing on musicality, dynamism, extreme precision, velocity. Without giving us a rest, the dancers jump, charge down, fly away.
