In ‘Soft Things’, two bodies will explore the equation of softness and femininity and travel through different forms of being. Softness is both a highly symbolic quality and at the same time, a central dimension of corporeality – be it of human or non-human kind. Associated with formability, fragility and delicacy as body properties, but also with flexibility and submissiveness as characteristic traits, softness is very often thought to be an explicitly feminine attribute. In this performance, two bodies are going through a hard process to become soft things.
Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.
