Performance synopsis

‘Bonds’ is a wordless solo, a combination of theatre, dance and performance art with bondage aesthetics. The show is a personal reflection on life’s entanglements. The viewers of ‘Bonds’ take a part in a metaphorical journey of initiation. During the journey, as in life, opposing forces – pleasure and suffering, freedom and shackles, vitality and the memento of death – complement each other, literally intertwining and entangling. The performance is intended for adults.
