Shakespeare reclaimed and unleashed.

Unbound is a bold new take on Shakespeare’s works where female characters finally take centre stage.

Meet Ophelia, Emilia and Volumnia, three sisters fighting to forge their destinies in a world where power is everything. A second Act finds the women transported into a technicolour dreamscape where inner fears and desires are unleashed in a whirl of movement, dance and sound.

Unbound is a story for our age: a bewitching collision of classical text and dynamic contemporary forms that is sure to challenge everything you think you know about the Bard. This theatrical intervention rejects sexist stereotypes, casting the feminine and masculine in both flawed and moral lights while offering various possibilities of gender expression to a modern audience.
