Song Sing Soil explores permeability between shapelessness and form, between the realms of living and dying, between meaning making and meaning falling apart. The performance slowly unfolds around a specially conceived song that drifts between different mindsets, tones, voices and frequencies. The soundtrack fluctuates between fierce instructions directed to the listener, silent moments, tender melodies and intimate musings. The performers' movements respond to this soundscape, supporting the words with their bodies and gazes.

The piece is a plea for slowing down, for staying with the in-betweenness, and for expanding the capacity for feeling and listening.
