Bound(less) is a large-scale vertical dance choreographed by Amelia Rudolph that explores how we imagine and construct the meaning of our identity as it is forged through human interactions and interactions with our environment.
Performed with live music by Dana Leong, Bound(less) looks at our internal and collaborative sense of self through moments that reveal our vulnerability and longing and group choreography that brings to life the tensions and power of communal action.
Physical metaphors, including a single dress worn by three women and a tethered group dance, are woven with intimate moments of movement and text into a dynamic aerial work.
"Bound(less)" requires an open wall site with an adjacent plaza for audience viewing. Load-in requires 2-3 days advance on site and full lighting and sound support. The “Bound(less)" company ranges from 10 to 16 people.
BANDALOOP re-imagines dance, activates public spaces, and inspires wonder and imagination in audiences around the world.
