Soft Command is a solo for dancer Alessandra Ruggeri presented at Oslo National Academy of the Arts in April 2017, and at Cie Twain, Rome in May 2017.
Soft Command revolves around the presence of one dancer as the pivotal point of the performance situation. It works with very softly commanding the attention of its spectator, using subtle light and sound effects as well as proximity of performer to spectator and the use of space. As the operator/commander of the performance situation the performer guides the dramaturgy through time.
