A journey into the unknown and a search for a better future, inspired by true accounts of Human Trafficking
On tour to 3 Oxfordshire venues, The Mill in Banbury on 20 April, Old Fire Station in Oxford on 2 & 3 June and Cornerstone in Didcot 21 June, as part of a larger tour.
Inspired by true accounts of human trafficking, by dreams, broken promises, resilience and above all hope, BOUND tells of three people’s
journeys into the unknown. Oxford based physical theatre company Justice in Motion is passionate about bringing to light the experiences
of those trafficked, while exposing the industry that lies behind.
Very much a contemporary story, Justice in Motion looks at the person behind the headlines in BOUND, a moving and beautifully crafted
drama about trafficking. The show is a compelling and passionate mixture of physical theatre, dance, music, spoken word and film creating
an entertaining, sometimes humorous and often thought provoking theatrical experience for today’s audiences. The show, suitable for
14 years and over, is followed, after some performances, by a discussion with the performers and human trafficking experts.
Artistic Director Anja Meinhardt said ‘ I had originally intended to create a piece about dreams, hopes and promises but soon found myself
in this alien world instead, one which back then, I knew little about. It could be a difficult subject so the actors and I set about devising a
drama that deals with the subject sensitively and in a realistic manner, yet light enough to keep our audience entertained and engaged.
From the responses we get after the show I think we have achieved exactly that.’
The Company is:
Anja Meinhardt, Justice in Motion’s artistic director. She trained in Germany, Austria and subsequently in England, amongst others with
David Glass, Amit Lahav and Hofesh Shechter.
