Our second time at bound was a great night. On reason we specially wanted to make this particular night was that Nawakiri Shin was going to perform and we wanted to meet him. He is the only rigger we knew of from Tiwan and he’d also performed at Hajimi Kinoko’s festival Tobaku in Japan.
It was again a great night of performances. There are some riggers in London that are making real strides forward and the quality of some performances was visibly improving.
Here it will not surprise you that I’m going to concentrate on Nawakiri Shin’s performance at Bound.
The thing that struck me about Shin’s performance right away was how theatrical it was. There was a scripted story, delightfully there was also comedy. The performance was entitled ‘Monster’ and I won’t spool the joke for you if you haven’t seen it. I don’t think I’ll spoil too many secrets however if I say Cute Schoolgirl gets tied up and sadistic things happen to her. It was a lot of fun. They were a lot of fun. Really looking forward to seeing them again at the London festival.
We also did a little something. Pics of our performance below.
