1 in 4 of us live in The Box at some point. What are we going to do about it?
The Box is new contemporary dance theatre which explores the impact depression can have and how our society responds to it. A beautiful combination of exquisite choreography and thought-provoking social commentary, presented with feeling and humour, this is a powerful and inspiring new work. Performed by four talented dancers, The Box offers an innovative and playful way to connect with a sometimes difficult to talk about subject matter.
“Going to see The Box was my first ever trip to see a contemporary dance performance and I was captivated by the strength of the message that the performance managed to put across. The use of dance, humour, and drama to demonstrate a genuine empathy for mental health issues was so clever, well-constructed and engaging…brilliant” Audience member
