About the show:
Glitch-Bound is the latest production from Thomas Noone Dance. In these two contrasting pieces the company continues to seek new languages while retaining its signature physical dance style.
This is an investigation into mechanisms that trigger an emotional in the audience. Experimenting with the creation of sequences and patterns that generate expectation then disrupting or interrupting them by introducing brusque changes of tempo, removing participants, or inverting roles. The aim is to create a choreographic conversation or dialogue in which the participants
never achieve the expected connection.
The music for Glitch comes from the Slovenian Borut Krisnik in his first collaboration with Noone.
Bound is a consideration of what artistic freedom implies both in the context of this dance piece and at a wider level. In order to truly have the freedom to interpret one has to be extremely disciplined in approach or have a true dominion of ones media.
Bound is performed to a soundtrack composed by Mexican Felipe Perez Santiago for TND and recorded with himself directing and playing with his own musical group, The MalʼAhk Ensemble.
This small, high energy company from Barcelona features the Thomas Noone brand of aesthetic athletics and potent drama laced with lunacy.
