Juggling happiness, hope and disappointment, „On tenderness” tells the story of some meaningful encounters where all the characters of the play, who seem to live in some kind of trance, rediscover ways of knowing and expressing love. Matei Vișniec`s play gives the spectator the chance of an irreversible revelation – that of tenderness encapsulated in details.
„On tenderness” is a memorable show in all its facets, an island where everybody can land from time to time, if they want to take a breath of fresh air and distance themselves from vulgarity and the race to nowhere”, as the playwright himself declares.
