SCHLOSS presented a new performance by Veronica Bruce in collaboration with dancer Jennie Bergsli for Coast Contemporary. Their practice merge principles and patterns of different contexts, and create repetitive states that allows for new readings as you reach beyond fatigue. In the performance Soft, Interlude, Bruce and Bergsli explores performing vulnerability. Both in the sense of the individual sensitivities and the collective notion of bodies as a landscape.

Soft Interlude, performed by Veronica Bruce and Jennie Bergsli at Bergen Kunsthall.
