Boxes is a 30-minute social justice theatre project devised by international award winning theatre-makers Ameera Conrad and Neil Coppen, journalist Daneel Knoetze, and performers Quanita Adams and Mark Elderkin.

Over the course of four short scenes, Boxes probes the legacy of apartheid spatial planning and forced removals, examining notions of ‘development’ and ‘progress’, by interrogating the question: Who is really benefitting from all this so-called progress?
