Boxman is Sister Sylvester's first work, and draws on the novel by Kobo Abe about a phenomenon in Tokyo where people retreat from their lives to live inside human sized boxes, evading the company of others. The company created a piece that could tour like a band, and toured bars, shopfronts as well as theaters, adapting the piece to each new setting they found themselves in.
