"Out the Box" is a new media project broadcasting filmed texts, streamed live and to a limited audience.

Only a limited number of pre-registered attendees will get to watch each live video. The performances will not be broadcast on social media, or recorded for later viewing -- you have to be there if you want to see something new.
