“SoftMachine is an affirmation on the individuality and struggles of contemporary dance artists across Asia. Ka Fai investigates and extends the boundaries of choreography into the documentary, it is an innovative and bold production contemplating dance and life as an inseparable contour.” – Ezekiel Olivera, FiveLineAsia, Singapore
Chinese artists XiaoKe x ZiHan make collaborative works that explore the extremes of bodily movement to reflect on the social and political context of China. Their SoftMachine performance draws on their experience of constant cultural surveillance to investigate the boundaries of artistic freedom.
