Out of Bounds

Out of Bounds is an evening-length site-based work that begins on a shore, migrates across the sand, and ends on a bed of cardboard on cement.  Out of Bounds is the culminating performance through the  Annenberg Community Beach House Choreographic Residency.  The work engages with geopolitical boundaries and the contrast of the Pacific Ocean at the Southern California shore with other shores all over the world, including those of Greece and Turkey.  It involves over 30 performers that perform at the shore, bound by ropes, crawl out of the ocean en masse, and walk with the audience to land.  Jay Carlon examines borders as sites of trauma and possible healing, as well as how moving together can become a call to action.
