Outside

Outside is the exciting and haunting devised theatre piece created by Shadowbox and their resident company of actors with intellectual disabilities. The piece premiers at the Ranum International Theatre Festival in Denmark before touring Ireland.

Outside forces you into a different world, a world where communication does not rely on words but on emotional gesture. Set outside a timeless circus tent, the piece explores what it feels like to be outside, not allowed in, to have someone else decide that you should have no home, no child, no right to wander freely.
Shadowbox continue to develop their particular visual theatre style with this piece, capturing an audience’s senses and imagination with images, emotion and body language.
‘Welcome to the imperfect but beautiful Outside’.
