“James-Griffiths and ensemble have created a beautifully raw, thought provoking and insightful performance, which I would urge everybody to go and see.”
Scottish choreographer Julia James-Griffiths will premiere her new work The Box, a contemporary dance theatre piece that explores the impact depression can have on an individual and how society responds to it, in a way that aims to be innovative, creative, yet accessible.
“The Work is that rare and beautiful combination of exquisite choreography and thought provoking social commentary presented with flare, feeling and humour….”
Steve Slater, Artistic Director of Citymoves
1 in 4 of us live in The Box, what are we going to do about it?
The Box is a contemporary dance theatre piece that explores the impact depression can have on an individual, and how our society responds to it, in a way that aims to be innovative, creative, yet accessible.
“The Box begs to be seen by anyone with an interest or involvement in mental health issues. It is a gripping, emotive look at depression…a deeply engaging and satisfying work”
