Black Box teater collaborates with three associated and companion artists, for a period of two years with each of them.
This collaboration, one of the anchor points to strengthen the place of artists in the house, is an experiment, with components we invent together over time. Concretely, it is a fidelity during a given period: it means that we support and regularly present the work of these artists, that we are mutual conversation partners and that specific projects are imagined in common.
