The Box – work in progress
1 in 4 of us live in The Box. What are we going to do about it?
Following from a previous research and development period, Julia James-Griffiths will be continuing to develop her new work The Box alongside four dancers. This work looks into the impact depression can have on an individual, and how our society responds to it.
Through movement, and the playful use of text/spoken word and the physical elements found and used for depression/mental health issues, the work will explore the idea of confinement, in its various forms, and what can be produced from it.
During this residency, and as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival, Julia will also be offering a free workshop titled ‘Mind To Move’ for those with experience of struggling with mental health issues to take part in (no dance experience necessary).
