Blinded Mind

Blinded Mind is a dance work that plays with contrasts and oppositions. Its powerful visual elements and soundworld tells the story of one individual’s bravery in swimming against the stream and the unavoidable consequences that follow. Dreamlike sensitivity is combined with stark reality. It plays with visual contrasts, in which black-and-white and colour engage in a dialogue.
