BOUND 2013

with No Comments


Driven by the hope of a better life, three vastly different characters find themselves bound to circumstances they would never have chosen or foreseen and must now decide to what extent they will be defined, shaped or broken by them.
Inspired by true accounts of human trafficking, BOUND is a strong, powerful and visual piece of physical theatre that explores each character’s journey through a dynamic fusion of movement, theatre, music, projection and circus.
A three-strong cast bring this exciting, hard-hitting yet entertaining piece to the stage, exploring issues of human isolation, exploitation and suffering, without alienating or accusing. BOUND is a compelling and thought-provoking tale of dreams and broken promises, yet optimism and resilience in the face of harrowing circumstances.
