Electrifying audiences in Australia, the UK and Europe, Honour Bound pushes the limits of live performance with its hyper-athletic and agile aerial work. Nigel Jamieson's award-winning production raises crucial questions about the balance between the pursuit of national security and the protection of human rights.

Set in an eight-metre-high metal cage, Honour Bound fuses aerial acrobatics, dance, theatre and film to tell the story of Australian David Hicks and his five-year incarceration without trial at Guantanamo Bay. Told through the eyes of Hicks' parents, Honour Bound is a deep and personal journey combining a soundscape of phrases from moving testimonies, excerpts of letters and official documents with a cascade of projected images of Guantanamo Bay and the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights.

Nigel Jamieson is a theatrical visionary responsible for some of the world's most enthralling large-scale productions such as the Tin Symphony for the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Honour Bound won three awards at the Sydney Theatre Awards, including Best New Australian Work.

Exceptional and unforgettable, Honour Bound is a production of rare intelligence and power.
