Peachfuzz is a solo embracing Radical Softness as a performance strategy and a form of resistance.

Claire Lefèvre fantasized 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 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. She invites the audience on a warm and fuzzy trip, where velvety voices tell overly-dramatic stories, delicate dances stroke the space languorously, and pink clouds of cotton candy melt on the tongue.

This work is a co-production of C.A.K.E. and brut Wien. It is supported by Im_Flieger, Tanzfabrik, MA7 (Wien Kultur), BKA, Nadalokal and Huggy Bears.
