In the bookshop at Black Box teater, you will find a small selection of books, each of them related to the theater program.

The books have either been suggested by the artists, are related to their practice, or evolve thematically around the seasonal program and topical program. Here you can also buy books published by Black Box teater and books from Varamo Press, a publishing house founded by the artists Mette Edvardsen and Jaroen Peeters.
