Out of the Box Festival - April 14-19
About the Festival
Welcome to the Out Of The Box Festival. We hope you see things that you've never seen before, hear things in a way that you've never heard them and experience new innovations in performance. We hope your imagination is enlivened, your mind challenged and your vision of how things should be completely rethought. We have asked all our participants to leave the "Box" of "The way it's always been" and enter the world of "What If We…"
We hope you enjoy the adventure!
