In THE BOLD, THE BOUND & THE BRITTLE a portrait of our current time is made, live on the theater floor. A new piercing performance by choreographer Jelena Kostić, with unrestrained dance and sudden music.

Two powerful women play their personal, destructive, comfortable and erotic moments until they are redundant. They leave behind the conflict between the brittle and the obscene.

Hinging on a past both distant and nearby, THE BOLD, THE BOUND & THE BRITTLE opens the door to a space where we all step out of our uniform. What remains is our own delicate humanity.

This production was made in 2016


“At their most vulnerable two women show what a female body is capable of. A tour de force that demands respect. (…) With this amazing duet The Bold, the Bound and the Brittle convincingly shows what Kostić and her dancers have to add to the field of dance.”
