un·fixed is a physical exploration of labels and limitations. The dance utilizes a rope to represent the physical manifestation of boundaries established in our society. Using intricate, detailed movement, the dancers establish the baseline of definitions and boundaries of the group. By questioning and challenging the physical limitation of the rope, each dancer negotiates the associated physiological and emotional dramas of the boundary.
