Myopic Bounds

2012, Dance-theater

The dance theatre »Myopic Bounds« deals with the corset of conventions, emotions and socialisation that surround us all, and asks questions concerning the need for freedom, limitation, bound and isolation in reference to this corset. How much are we restricted by our outer and inner worlds? How can we develop despite or because of these different bounds that we are moving in? And where might the imagined but fortress space of emotion that surrounds us lead to?

The dancers show mutual approximation, the effort of overcoming personal boundaries and the merging and collapse of community to the point of solitude during the performance. The dance refers to models of human behaviour and repetitive acts in daily life situations.

The stage design is built only by diverse light-situations. The described ‘spaces’ are projected from a video projector, whose light is broken by stage-fog. Different space situations are built throughout the piece and are changed in real time.

The projections have been realized with vvvv in conjunction with TouchOSC.
