A physical production with an original soundscape that is created live, a dance theatre piece about reaching out to someone, about togetherness.
Two people find themselves stuck in a confined space, a box. They can’t get away from each other.
There is confusion, fear and a sense of unfamiliarity. Gradually they warm to each other, though not without the inevitable tensions, clashes, caresses and emotions. Uneasiness turns to laughter and infectious amusement.
A small space.
An overture of friendship.
Tension fills the box.
An explosion of togetherness.
In a box.duration: 45’
The show is staged within the international festival of theatre and culture for early years Visioni di futuro, visioni di teatro (Bologna, 28th February - 8th March, 2020).
