In »Soft Things« two bodies explore the equation of softness and femininity, traveling through different forms of being. Softness is a highly symbolic quality and at the same time a central dimension of bodies - human and non-human. Associated with malleability, fragility, and delicacy, but also with compliance and docility, softness is often perceived as an explicitly feminine quality. In this performance, two bodies go through a hard process to become soft things.
