Their Limbs Their Lungs Their Legs 2019

In a gloomy green space, nine performers explore and reconsider modes of bodily existence. The boundaries of their limbs, lungs, and legs are blurred, becoming a part of the universe they inhabit and which inhabits them.

The outdoors turned outside in, indoors. A playful landscape inside a porous and leaky container, formed by the outside. Just like the skin of our bodies, that contains our insides, is formed by those who touch us.

Things put in a container become ours, we store them, save them, and share them. The borders of the container form the conditions for how the things inside it can interact. The outside and inside are constantly defined by each other, separated and united through their collective border. Inviting the outside in is a play with penetrable borders of vital existence.
