Out of the box talks about the dreams and ambitions of youth and their non-linear way of thinking, and the way it interacts with the older age.
The play highlights, through use of "BOXES" as a symbol, restrictions that traditions and the community surrounds us with, those boxes that limit our simple relationships with each other.
Boxes are a symbol for our fake identities that the community builds for us.
So, are we ready to get rid of those boxes?
Join us to enrich this learning experience as we open the floor for Q&A
The different scenes touch on subjects such as career choices and the pressure placed on young people to value respected positions in the community rather than following dreams. As the play progresses topics such as shallow, superficial friendships based on looks and gossip are raised. The current emphasis on social media as a way of creating, or as the case may be, destroying relationships is also touched on.
When we reach scene four, deeper issues, such as the loss of childhood in certain cultures once a girl reaches her period. The penultimate scene comments on the profound subject of friendships not barred by religion.
The play concludes with a final dance piece asking the question- are you ready to remove your box?
