BOUND is a performance work in development, exploring stories of women suffering and surviving systemic oppressions, from incarceration to sexism, racism and the underlying patriarchy. The work draws together stories of formerly incarcerated women and female historical archetypes, through movement, text and use of a physically confined space the size of a typical prison cell space (6×8). The actors explore literal, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual methods of survival engaged by these women in resistance against systemic oppression.
*Pro Arts’ The New Situationists program is made possible with a generous grant from The Phyllis C. Wattis Foundation.
