Meet Anna. A 21 year old with a passion for baking… and change making.
When Anna sees #activism trending on Instagram, she recognises an opportunity to share her story. But before she expresses her pre-heated passion online, she lays out steps she can take on and off screen, and thinks of boundaries she can set to safely call out injustice.
A tower of boxes. Held strong by four hands.
Take two hands away and it still stands.
Take the rest away...
BOXED was a work in progress production staged at East 15's LAUNCH Festival in 2017.
‘BOXED’ is a dangerously delicate two hander that explores the tension between love and ambition. The pair’s story is un-boxed by a voice that commentates the action… A scientific study. A study of humanity. That picks at Joe and Rebecca’s animalistic behaviours and asks how far are we from the animals we once were… Or are we still animals? Defined as humans by the simple ambition to create man-made things, things as simple as cardboard boxes.
