Join a collection of aural and physical bodies learning how to exist and navigate feelings of safety in public space. We invite you to enter a room that is unapologetically claimed and bear witness to our day-to-day experiences through the visceral and sensorial experience of boxing.
Set in a group boxing class, vigorous displays of explosive physical power contrast with tales of self-consciousness, discomfort, reproach and harassment. While acknowledging the very real and physical fears that women face, Boxed In concludes with a subtle message of strength and resilience" - 4.5/5 STARS, Arts Hub
