A creative approach to youth performance, The Box places five objects before students aged thirteen to fourteen, encouraging these young
theatre-makers to devise an inspired performance. The project engages youths via two strands: the first uses workshops to guide secondary and sixth form students through non-linear approaches to performance and other aspects of theatrical production.

The second strand is a special edition of the project developed especially for our European Capital of Culture year, where a select group of Maltese young adults team up with international mentors to create a devised performance for children based on the theme Island Stories. The resulting performance will be shared with local audiences in collaboration with Żigużajg, while the valuable experiences of the performers contribute to future workshops with students.
