We like music, images, and colour; we like characters, jokes, and games. We believe in fairness, and we are invested in untold, unheard stories. Our work has energy and rhythm; we want to engage and entertain.
We like to make theatre that is wild, and don’t mind if things go wrong: we like unplanned, we like mistakes, we like alive. We want to make work that listens to and speaks with audiences. We want them to make up their own minds about what they see.
We aim to be courageous and outspoken with each other. We trust the play, we trust one another, and we trust the audience.
We enjoy playing with the senses and taking advantage of theatre being live and living. We like to think carefully about space: its context and history, its dimensions and acoustics, and its location and landscape. We don’t believe in franchises or one-size-fits-all.
We are a theatre company that believes in sharing with our audience. Our theatre is not a lecture, it’s responsive; we don’t blame or attack. We find stories with a pulse and embrace the live.
We are Rocket Box.
Formed in 2018 at the University of York, our debut work was a staging of Alice Birch’s Many Moons which premiered at the Create. Engage. React. festival, in 2019. Since then, we have gone on to win the York Performance Award 2019, and toured throughout England. Throughout 2020 and 2021 we produced our digital season, Rocket Bytes.
