BOUND is a regular bi-monthly event to inspire enthusiasts of Japanese rope bondage (shibari) and increase the awareness of the general public of this increasingly popular performance art and means of erotic communication. The mission of this night is to show that shibari is a million miles from the image that the word ‘bondage’ usually conjures up for the average man in the street or even the 50 Shades of Grey reader.

BOUND is committed to bring shibari, like butoh, out of the shadows and into the mainstream of alternative art. It attracts international performers and some of the UK’s best new talent. It also provides an environment where skills can be exchanged and a platform for new talent to cut their teeth on stage in a supportive and friendly atmosphere.

It was created by internationally renowned performer and teacher Esinem and artists Nina Russ and Mosaru
