17, 18 Nov 2006. In The Box Office, choreography by Colin Poole for RomaEuropa Festival. The programme explains that The Box Office tackles some of the thorny issues of integration in a contemporary multi-ethnic society. In particular, the negative, stereotypical image of the black man often associated by the media with violent situations, prostitution and drugs. In a solo performance using mimicry and a minimal stage setting made up of T-shirts spread out to dry, Poole exorcises racism and prejudice with a blunt but symbolic weapon dance. Violence, rape, striptease and even an orgasm are presented to us as an accompaniment to Bernstein, Schubert and others, as Poole (a former dancer with Rambert) punches and kicks his way through the work dressed, on one side, as a masked golliwog doll and as a luscious-lipped broad on the other.
