BOKS is a physical production with an original, composed 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. They also discover that they are not alone. Gradually they warm to each other, though not without the inevitable tensions, clashes, caresses and emotions. Uneasiness turns to laughter and infectious amusement.
