As a child, Hildegard Von Bingen began experiencing intense prophetic – and often apocalyptic – visions and communications with God. Suffering through chronic illness, she kept these hidden from those around her until her forties, fearing she would be branded a lunatic or, worse, a witch.
This multigenerational female ensemble uses voice and movement in an physical opera to explore the span of a woman’s life, what it means to always live in fear, with wisdom, and if Hildegard ever felt truly free.
When she finally revealed herself as a visionary, music, poetry, and wisdom spilled out of her, and she became one of the most prominent women in European history, and is now regarded as the Patron Saint of music and poetry.
In ‘Hildegard’ the use of multimedia and movement viscerally externalises her internal trials and tribulations, immersing the audience in her mind and heart.

Bound By Theatre

People’s heartbeats synchronise during a live performance. We are quite literally bound by the shared experience of theatre. Bound By Theatre is an innovative transatlantic theatre and performance art company seeking to promote and investigate these bonds between those who take part - from performer to playwright, patrons to producer - even if in disagreement or discomfort.

Started by Kristin Winters in 2019, Bound By Theatre premiered with a sell-out performance of SMOKE at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe that summer. Bound By Theatre has gone on to produce sell out and award-winning productions the Brighton, Bloomsbury, and United Solo Theatre Festivals.

Bound By Theatre produces published and original work. With roots in laboratory theatre, Bound By Theatre explores the moments when the body can express what words cannot. Bound By Theatre seeks to examine the topics and questions that are often considered taboo, or from which we want to turn away, and hopes to create an environment that encourages the audience to ask - and maybe answer - questions from which they would otherwise steer clear or find too uncomfortable to broach.

Most recently, Bound By Theatre produced Ghislaine/Gabler* to critical acclaim at Edinburgh Fringe.

* Winner of Best International Show at United Solo
