Quiz question: What is the world record long jump? Run Beyond, created by Angelo Bonello, provokes that question, because the jump the man in this work takes, seems impossibly far. The keyword here is ‘seems’, because, according to Bonello, nothing is impossible if only you want it badly enough.
Run Beyond is a work about the jump we all have to take in our lives: the jump to freedom. Bonello does not tell us what kind of freedom, the spectator has to make up his own mind about that.
Bonello: "To me this work is about the power of imagination, a power so strong that it makes individuals conquer their fears and limitations and causes them to open up to other cultures, new friendships and unknown worlds." In Dutch there is the saying: ‘If someone jumps into the ditch, do you go after him?’, intended as a caution not to just follow everybody and everything. In this case we would like to give you the opposite advise: please do jump after this enlightened man.
