Against the Grain Theatre presents the world premiere of BOUND by composer Kevin Lau, with libretto by AtG's Artistic Director, Joel Ivany. BOUND is a fully realized three-year concept to realization project that infuses new sounds and ideas into the backbone of Handel’s existing works. 

In the wake of the world’s refugee crisis, this operatic premiere explores the current state of those displaced, dehumanized and mistreated, with texts and stories drawn from real-life news articles and world events.

Starring Beste Kalender, Breanna Sinclaié, Ernesto Ramirez, Justin Welsh and Martha Burns.

Directed by Mitchell Cushman
Set design by Anahita Dehbonehie
Costume design by Nick Blais
Lighting design by Jason Hand
