Bending the Walls is a Korzo Theater and Nederlands Dans Theater production.
Bending the Walls explores the world of restrictions and limitations in
our search for happiness, freedom and understanding: our physical and psychological boundaries and the world around us. It is a metaphor about the psychological, physical and emotional forces human beings can use to transcend tangible reality, overcome affliction and escape to a world of imagination.
