Three desperate people take on the biggest gamble of their lives in the hope of a better future.

BOUND is a compelling, thought-provoking story of dreams and broken promises. The three find themselves bound by a dark, sad reality. They define, shape and rebel against their isolation and exploitation. It is their hope, optimism and resilience that is at the core of this powerful piece.

In a dynamic fusion of dance, circus, music, poetry, parkour and film we bring you a story of strength in adversity.

BOUND has been in the repertoire since 2013 and continues to evolve and develop. Each outing brings a new version for audiences to take something from.

“unveils stories of hope and desolation in an imaginative and articulated way.” Theatre Bubble ★★★

“If pictures are worth a thousand words, then the live experience of movement theatre of this quality must be worth a library of volumes.” Daily Info

“Not only is the movement stunning but the music and the visuals come together to very potent and disturbing effect.” Your Harlow
