TWO LITTLE BOXES
Produced by Reallynice
Frantic, physical, hilarious, and oddly touching, Two Little Boxes presents two young boys becoming young men. Navigating the treacherous world of adolescence, characters A and J are fumbling their way through their own constantly shifting relationship, from bravado and physical comparison, to secret handshakes and tender moments.
This thought-provoking production aims to raise questions about the construction of gender identities, inspired by Raewyn Connell's seminal theory on 'Masculinities': that multiple gender identities can exist simultaneously in the bodies and minds of each person as a result of their external stimulus.
The production has toured to theatres, festivals, schools and universities across the UK, France, China and Japan, simultaneously facilitating a wraparound documentary and workshop project aimed exploring the construction of masculinities and intercultural discussions between people separated by geographical, linguistic and cultural barriers.
