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
