Scottish Choreographer Julia James-Griffiths will be premiering her new work The Box this year as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts Festival 18.The Box is a full-length 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.
Through movement, and the playful use of text / spoken word and the physical elements found and used for depression / mental health issues, the work explores the idea of confinement, in its various forms, and what can be produced from it.
The event will end with a post-show discussion with Julia about the work.
