I was completely taken aback at how powerfully their brand of storytelling impacted upon their audience. The impact of their theatrical presentation was moving and impressive, and important.
Enabling participants to explore the “what ifs” and “how comes”, and prompting ah-ha moments in discovering others’ perspectives and challenging their own.
They are very skilful in identifying a young adult that wants to say something, and then makes that person feel safe and comfortable enough in that environment, to voice their thoughts in front of their peers.
TIC Box empowers them to affect future situations they will encounter with a broader viewpoint – not because they’ve been told but because they’ve discovered the way to believe in themselves and others.
Having it put on at my school also told me very clearly that my school was an atmosphere in which it was safe to have these discussions, and be an LGBTQ+ person.
Their work is transformational, helps break cycles of violence and is something that we need more of in our society.
The audience can actively explore scenarios, testing out what they would say in certain situations, questioning each other’s preconceptions and unpicking the issues honestly and authentically.
The play is brilliantly written, produced and delivered by a small team of actors.
Each one of these performances is different, due to the interactive structure and the collaborative work with students.
TIC Box have crafted a vast range of unique resource which are hugely effective and welcomed by all.
