Soulless plays on the desire to be seen and the need to subvert and retreat. It is a solo performance for a mute figure who must be looked at in order to be heard. Inspired by the logics of mime and slapstick, Hagar Tenenbaum approaches her body through the concept of plasticity. Grotesque, clumsy and fragile materials become the substance of entertainment and amusement. Woven together with Hendrik Willekens’ music, movement undergoes perpetual change in shape and volume and in proximity and estrangement from itself, reaching an awkward flow. Soulless is simultaneously invested in the physical pain of the real and in the theatrical world of make-believe.
