Displayed across the City of Luxembourg, several so called Boxes of Life invite you to participate in an original cross-art project. Initiated by the Théâtres de la Ville and created as part of this season’s cycle ‘Mémoires et Résiliences’, the project, which was imagined by Elisabeth Schilling in collaboration with the cultural coordination of the City of Lyembourg and the Lycée des Arts et Métiers, invites everyone to share their individual or collective experiences and their reflections on the joy of life – an invitation to reunite and also to give strength in those worrying times.


Further information can be found in the video below.


 Would you like to join in and write a postcard?

Don’t hesitate to take a look at the map below to find a box nearby. If you want to receive some postcards by post, please write a mail to boxoflife@elisabethschilling.com.


What will be happen to my postcard and my thoughts shared?

We will collect all of the answers and collate your diverse experiences, tips and ideas about the many ways of celebrating life. The postcards will thereafter be exposed in the theatre: they will form an installation in the foyer of the Grand Théâtre in May and June 2022. They will also provide the starting point for an original choreography, developed with the wider community and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling. The dance performance will be part of the 2022 series of the Théâtre de la Ville’s TalentLAB in June 2022. 


How can I get involved in the dance performance?

The dance performance will be created throughout 10 workshops in May 2022. They are free and open to all, no previous dance experience is necessary. To express your interest in participating, please send an email to boxoflife@elisabethschilling.com
