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?
In the musical and dramaturgical realisation of the piece, the element of repetition found in patterns of human interaction and behaviour interests me. Sounds the dancers produce with their movements build the fundament for the rhythmical realisation of the different musical patterns. The music evolves through a simple, rhythmical theme that varies as the piece progresses, curving back to the start at its end.
