London-based Felicita is as one of the most interesting young producers working with fractured sounds. Soft Power was commissioned by Unsound, in collaboration with traditional dancers from Song and Dance Ensemble “Śląsk” – the oldest and most renowned company of its kind in Poland. This unique work synthesizes traditional choreography and costume with new music to create a hypnotic multimedia experience. The concept stems from Felicita’s childhood education in traditional dance, and explores folk culture, national identity, tourism, branding, illusion, and farce.
Soft Power’s premiere at Unsound 2016 was met with widespread critical acclaim.
