Bound (1982)

With the Festival d'automne à Paris


AN UNSTABLE CENTRE
BETWEEN MOMENTS OF DANCE AND INTERIOR REFLECTION, THE GREAT CHOREOGRAPHER STEVE PAXTON PUTS STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS INTO PLAY IN THIS MYTHICAL SOLO.


Founding member of the Judson Dance Theatre, melting pot of post-modern dance and inventor of “contact-improvisation”, Steve Paxton is one of the major figures of the American choreographic scene. Created in 1982, Bound belongs to the part of his body of work that mixes abstract structures related to improvisation at a level of more explicit composition, revealing fragments of scenery, costumes and disparate layers of sounds. Switching between moments of dance and interior reflection, the figure that’s incarnated is never totally in the centre but rather constructed with an unstable centre like a radio changing its frequencies. While they’re accumulating, the sequences draw out a broader picture – a flux of signs recalling the fragments of a world at war. Bound – to be linked, tied, moments bound between them, states of consciousness – a piece of theatre between things, times, where the body of dancer Jurij Konjar sneaks between the images that (re)generate like a balancing act.
