Unbound

60 Minutes
2006

Choreographed by Wen Wei Wang

Weaving former Chinese traditions with modern perspectves, Unbound is an intense and stylish exploration of ideals of bequty, power dynamics, and gender relationships. Wen Wei Wang’s choreography uses as its starting point reflections of the former Chinese practice of binding women’s feet in pursuit of status and an impossible erotic ideal. Unbound transcends its cultural origins to unravel sexualities, emotions and relationships that are universally familiar.
