BY RESTRICTING PERFORMANCE SPACE, WE'RE CREATING LESS LIMITATIONS
BOX HOUSE THEATRE COMPANY - THE WORLDS ONLY PROVIDER OF PLATFORM THEATRE
Platform Theatre is Box House's brand-new theatre style that restricts actors to the confined space of a gym mat. This particular style is incredibly unique as the actors do not have any assistance from props, set, costumes, and sound. By doing this, it means the actors only have their physical selves and voice to tell a story.
Platform theatre is the art of showcasing choreography, attention to detail, and interesting characters using minimalistic performance techniques. When successfully devised, your students will be able to transport the audience to far away lands within seconds.
This style also allows your students to freely explore the use of multi-rolling, caricatures, mime, and choreographed movement with ease.
Platform Theatre is a fantastic style for your students to explore within their devising unit as it allows them to freely experiment with their stimuli and create fun and innovative theatre without spending a penny.
This style also allows your students to quickly move past the tricky stage of deciding what props, costume, or staging they will need for their piece as minimalism is essential .
Additionally, this style will also introduce your students to the use of choreographed movement and sound effects within theatre.
We guarantee your students will be creating stand-out theatre if they decide to use our style!

Who are we?
Box House Theatre are a professional theatre company who specialise in the performance practice of Platform Theatre. Our aim is to create theatre that utilises the physical actors' skills and attributes rather than relying on the assistance of technical elements.
We stand as proof that impressive theatre should not be restricted to budgets, resources and opportunity, and that “boundary pushing theatre” is born from imagination and creativity alone.
We believe there is much to learn through our approach to theatre and we aim to establish ourselves both within the theatre industry and drama education sector to bring new and innovative ways of theatre creation.
Our style is not for one, but for all.
Alongside our professional theatre productions, Box House Theatre also extend to drama education and institutions through our workshops. We provide the tools and techniques to develop the creative independence of young theatre makers by extracting our knowledge and expertise from our professional theatre creations.
There is a demand within educational sectors for our way of creation to be implemented to the next generation of theatre makers.
Box House aim to break down the traditional approach to teaching. Knowing there is a way to transfer theatre and drama practices to the classroom we are making education more accessible and interactive whilst assisting young people's learning through the use of theatre.
