Dylan Crossman's latest solo, BOUND, questions emotional (in)dependence - how real freedom may lie in recognizing what binds us, what we have already freed ourselves from, and what ties will always be with us. The movement is a blend of gestural and highly physical material that follows a precise choreographic score. Through a straightforward delivery, raw and honest movement emerges, retreats, and surprises. Carrie Wood's lighting and the score created by Crossman and collaborator Hubert Lafore subtly dress the space.
