Catch Up

by Soft PLay

Catch Up (2020) is a performative response to constraints imposed by the pandemic. It was devised and performed by Soft Play, and filmed and edited by Alan Cunningham.


Soft Play (Iris Colomb & Paul Ingram) are a double act working between poetry, performance art and slapstick comedy. Their pieces have included, inter alia, custard pies, balloons, axes, buckets, milk, balls, signs and stepladders.
