“These sweet ladies are amazing. Beautiful dancers, true manifestation of graceful power the human body can produce…” Jakub Zeman 2016 observer in Amsterdam
BONDED, explores the construct of human dependency – especially that of siblings – and how time and external conditions can affect the synergetic connection. Performed by twin sisters, Kristina and Sade, the work takes the audience through a transitional journey of inter-and-independency through abstract narrative.
