The ninth production of the Cologne dance company MIRA is dedicated to emotional connections, sensitive separations, visible and invisible borders.
Especially in today’s times when borders and separations are essential for survival, the question of the emotional and social power of relationships that are shaped by borders arises anew.

In MIRA 9_what separates & binds us, 4 dancers deal with states in which they go beyond their own boundaries in order to build new bonds.
MIRA 9 spins a web of threads between individuals and exposes networks of relationships that shape our social system in all areas of life.
How must boundaries in relationships, networks and encounters be designed so that they not only constrict but also provide stability?

Where and how exactly do boundaries in relationships, networks, encounters run – how must they be in order to find support?
In MIRA 9, threads are spun into a web of individuals, a network of relationships is uncovered that shapes our system. How can they be spun tighter?
