About the work:

SOFTCORE BOUNDARIES is a performance exploring the voyeuristic qualities of safe spaces.
During the residency in which it was created we looked into the idea that there might be an inherent queer energy attached to our existence, and that even naked and in stillness we would be “clockable” somehow. We then wanted to create an open space, where people would feel safe enough to be challenged, and where the discourse about queer bodies and their agency would have an opportunity to happen.

Performers - Antonio Branco and Riccardo T.
Created at Dans I Blekinge, Sweden.

About the company:

Antonio Branco & Riccardo T. are a performance art duo based in London.

Their work is about the body and its presentation. Its physicality, aura, psyche, and identity.

Drawing from their own experiences their work primarily focuses on the queer body, the energy inherent to such a presence and its social implications. Their research then branches out into related themes of contemporary sexuality, gender norms, porn consumption, and fetishisation of actions and bodies.

The work is open. We don't want to present a finished stagnant piece, but rather a work receptive to change throughout its longevity in the space while being responsive to its audience.
