The second opus created at C12, Softness 2 attempts to paint a portrait of a generation torn apart in a climate that renders violence latent and invisible.
Between the disenchantment inherited from the philosophies of humanity's collapse and the hope of a radiant personal future in uninhibited capitalism, everything is nothing but shock and violence. Taking "competitiveness" as the driving force of an ultra-individualized urban society, Softness 2 examines the sensations, emotions and reflexes born of this pressure. Through this generation, embodied by four performers and a live DJ, Lorena Spindler examines the inevitability of rivalry and the need to surpass oneself, both individually and as part of a group. Starting from a symbolic and extreme situation, a nightclub ravaged by violence, the C12 space is transformed into an arena. To the bewitching hip-hop, club and UK/West Indies music of Jeune Clyde (LDC label), the three protagonists confront each other using their own codes: physical theater, dance and the spoken word.
