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.
