AntonioBrownDance explores the space in adolescence where we go from being a child to youth to adult. BOXED discusses childhood games as adulthood navigations of life. Can being good at hopscotch get one ahead in life? That space in-between adolescence and playing outdoors, to the smallness of a young adult world and learning the navigation of “playing games” to get ahead in the world, swirls inside the narrative of BOXED.

How can a game of double Dutch jump rope determine your future? Is the sandbox the first and best way to make friends or destroy them? Why does adulthood require ‘playing games’ to get ahead in business or finding a life partner? Search the internet to find there are more videos on circumventing how to do something correctly rather than learning how to do it. When or was it always that society taught us as children to stop using playground games as comradery and begin to use games as competition? BOXED challenges its audience to see through the harshness of adult game-playing to the world where it will heal your soul.
