Presentation

Participatory, group project
Box Meetings offers something for everybody, and is open to all types of people, from whichever walk of life. The main focus is the quality of the human relationships that are forged throughout the creative process, as well as the opportunity to share such a powerful experience from day one of the workshop, all the way up to the final performances given in front of an audience.

The workshop
” You are ejected from your home, you have 5 minutes to pack up your most precious belongings and leave, what would you take with you ? “
The workshop is designed, in part, to create a group dynamic, but also to teach a set of theatrical tools. The workshop leaders are there to help the participants build up their own personal story, to encourage them to open up and share those stories, but also to dare to unveil their weaknesses in front of an audience.

Press review

LIBÉRATION ” Even the confines of theatre lose all of their bearings. Thanks to these duos, which appear to the audience like transient sculptures, Kumulus manages to dissolve the stage and break it up into a sea of little islands. The show surrenders all forms of narration to adopt instead a language in flux.”
LA PROVENCE” And therein lay the seeds of a form of theatre that is both profoundly simple and human, where it is no longer necessary to speak the same language in order to be understood. “
