Mound bound is a solo performance in which spoken word and different memory objects are entangled together, looking for a relationship to tradition, roots, and a sense of belonging, as well as the loss of it all. The work looks at the frailness of being in a bricolage of globalized reality whilst piercing into traces of family, history and memory.
