Boxy George

Wordless puppet theatre about loneliness and friendship


One day a box suddenly emerges in George’s well-organized universe, and his quiet and controlled life is turned upside down for good.

He tries to get rid of the box, but to no avail. Soon more boxes show up, and they even grow legs. Then they start throwing him around like a ball. But the boxes aren’t trying to hurt him, they just want to shake things up – and soon George can no longer do without his new boxy friends.


”Masterful box thinking ... Theatre at its most intense, magical, and entertaining, revolving around the greater things in life.”



”The children cheer loudly, spurred on by the magic of the moment.”



”Teater Refleksion paints images competently and imaginatively ... enthralling images of the mind based on the phases and wonders of life.”
