Lisa Vereertbrugghen – Softcore
SOFTCORE – a hardcore encounter is a dance-lecture that approaches hardcore techno as softcore bodypolitics.
Evolving around hardcore and pornography, camouflage, speed and breaking, the performance questions both the hard and the core in hardcore techno and points to its text(ure) and potential.
The performer dances, speaks, rests, feels, occupies, dances, dances, dances and remains in hardcore.
