Video: Quentin Burley

Original Sound by// Hanna Elliott for the work

Costumes by// DOBS (Elanur Erdogan)

Program Notes:

Make the Brutal Tender is a dance with the limbic system. It is a ritual of consent and a dance of thresholds. It is about conflict and rivalry between women. It is about instinct and desire as they relate to tenderness. Music and musician act as catalyst, control, pressure and disrupter.
