During a hot summer, three people meet at the only place possible for them. They stare out at the sea and ask: “What do we want and need from bodies on stage in 2020? 
This is not a staging neither a video. It's a performance that never took place  but will be presented digitally.
In “Tender Fights” Ana Dubljević, Kasia Kania, and Marja Christian explore the knowledge that is inscribed in their bodies. Their bodies tell tales of resistant practices, visible in physical actions: being awake, listening to each other, standing up for oneself and others, standing up at all. They begin where knowledge is visible and negotiable in our bodies in everyday life and see how it works. The three of them face struggles and explore boundaries and visions of tenderness that they implant into these struggles.
