Softcore

Evolving around hard­co­re and por­no­grap­hy, camou­fla­ge, speed and brea­king, this 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. At 200 beats per minu­te hard­co­re is tech­no on amp­he­ta­mi­nes. It is rave gone cra­zy. It is the sound of the under­dog, What if dan­cing so fast can be a way to approp­ri­a­te speed not for being more pro­duc­ti­ve, but for the oppo­si­te: Speed beco­mes a way to increa­se sen­sa­ti­ons and to elu­de control.
