In the touching and sincere The Bold, The Bound & The Brittle Jelena Kostic invited women to hold a lecture on a vulnerable but powerful moment in their lives. In (UN)BOUND she investigates what it means to really come close.

In this performance we look at three professional, young dancers and an older non-professional mover. Age and youthfulness on stage, next to and with each other. Four people in the midst of solidarity and aversion. Their love for each other is just as strong as the resistance. If you don’t trust someone, you cannot really fight as well.

(UN)BOUND is a dualistic dance performance about real-life, long-term relationships.
