{Radical Softness} {Share & Care} {Lie down next to me}

As part of the Handle with care series, Claire Lefèvre opens her studio for a visit. Peachfuzz is a solo embracing “Radical Softness” as a performance strategy and a form of resistance. Vienna-based performer Claire Lefèvre will develop this piece as a celebration of tenderness and vulnerability, a choreographic caress and a care practice, a sensitive and sensual sticky-sweet dance nuzzling itself in hyper-feminine aesthetics.

“Radical Softness”, a concept first imagined by artist Lora Mathis, is a response to patriarchy's discomfort with anything overly-sensitive and vulnerable, anything emotional, anything which associates itself with femininity.

In her research, Claire Lefèvre wonders how to translate “Radical Softness” into a sensory and tactile embodied experience, and attempts to move (in) the space as a supple and hyper-sensitive body. For this work-in-progress showing, the audience will be invited to take part in a “horizontal feedback session”, a gentle and supportive format in which they can share their impressions with the artist while laying on the ground together.

The Handle with Care series grants sneak peeks into processes of artistic creation, experimenting with new formats and creating spaces for talking and the exchanging of views. Artists get the chance to try out parts of their work in front of a small audience, to receive feedback and to turn spectators into accomplices.

Claire Lefèvre is a French choreographer and performer, living and working in Vienna, Austria. Her works Function Man (imagetanz / brut Wien 2016), S/M (imagetanz / brut Wien 2017) and Welcome to the Fisch-Haus (brut Wien 2018) have been showcased in several festivals in Austria and internationally and have been supported by Life Long Burning, Im_Flieger, Wien Kultur, BKA, WUK, brut Wien and Huggy Bears. In her research, Claire is fascinated by the balance between entertainment and seduction in the context of performance. A self-titled language nerd, she also teaches writing workshops, and is a contributing writer for Springback Magazine.
