I wasn’t exactly sure what I’d be getting into when I accepted an invitation to Wonderbound from my friend Tanya. The performance was a pleasant and interesting experience.
Wonderbound is a dance group that performs contemporary dance along with live music while sticking to three fundamental values – community, collaboration, and creation.
This month’s performance took place at DU with the hip-hop band Flobots, from Denver. The lead singers sang and rapped while dancers moved around the stage in modern ballet style. For two songs, the group even included the audience which was very entertaining. The collaboration explored the “struggles between personal identity, community, individual freedom and collective power.”
I didn’t really focus on the deeper meaning, but simply enjoyed the music, dance and atmosphere. The performance was quite good. I’d recommend seeing them at least once. If tickets aren’t in the budget, go see them at an open door rehearsal. https://wonderbound.com/ ETB
