Orkestriska's Box is a 6-act dance-theater piece mixing contemporary and classical mediums. With a strong influence of expressionism the wordless piece depicts the psycho-spiritual awakening of a cloistered music box dancer. The audience experiences the world through her narrow perspective, witnessing a grotesque and distorted surreality of the world outside her box. The piece has a non-linear narrative that is meant to express the essence of the protagonists dilemma.
