a work in progress

co-created and performed by 

Stephanie DeMott & Krista DeNio

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.
