Four in a Box

‘Four in a Box’ is an 11 minute dialogue free film that investigates the creative process through movement, costume and sound. Four characters trapped in a box must find a way to balance their strengths to find a creative method of escape.

Taking inspiration from artist and Bauhaus master, Oskar Schlemmer and in particular his costumes for his 1922 ‘Das Triadisches Ballet’, the characters in ‘Four in a Box’ are rendered barely human, possessing an almost cartoon like quality.

In ‘Four in a Box’, individualism is replaced with unified collaboration as these four characters coalesce to resolve a problem that is bigger than their singular parts.
