Inner Land Mines is inspired by the loneliness one can feel in large cosmopolitan cities, and by the violence we can observe anywhere in the world. The choreographer links land mines, the deadly legacy of war, to the potentially destructive emotions that are buried deep inside of us, drawing a parallel between the violence we observe in our external environment and the personal mines scattered within ourselves.
In modern society, we are often required to live a distorted reality, while denying, consciously or not, our deepest urges, emotions, and memories. The artist compares our lives to a journey through rugged terrain until we trigger, voluntarily or not, the sensitive mechanism of the exploding device. Through exploring the dark side of individuality, Inner Land Mines uses movement to speak to the direct or indirect consequences of our trauma on our interactions with others. It also alludes to our search for balance to help us protect and maintain our relationships.
