In the words of its creators:


Old school

the ones that really bind…..

Ties is about power and power that feels invulnerable.

About the vulnerable.

About children and celebrity and politicians.

About silence that lasts beyond the grave.’

‘Ties’ will be shown in development and is the first production by Two Tonne, a new performance and performance research/development company led by Iain Bloomfield.
