Box Theatre is a collection of six one-person shows for one-person audiences. In each performance, actor and audience share a small box worn on the actor’s shoulders. Using a combination of text, tiny props and a little magic, actor and audience engage in the most intimate of performance experiences.
Working with Theatre Replacement artistic directors and local artisan Kofu Yamamoto, six emerging theatre makers developed their independent stories and boxes from a selection of found material, including a Japanese folktale and an object from Japanese pop culture.
Box Theatre was originally commissioned by the Powell Street Festival and featured Adrienne Wong, Spencer Herbert, Kris Nelson, Camille Gingras, Maiko Yamamoto and James Long.
