Read Synopsis

In Spirit, three performers struggle to tell the story of three bakers—brothers in a country at war content with their daily routine until one day when a letter arrives giving one the chance to break free. With quiet improvisation, headless puppets, fractured storytelling, and dark humor, Spirit is a teasing and sad joke about both personal and global cycles of conflict, that hints at how we might break out of them. The Independent on Sunday called Spirit, “A transcendent night…inspired and poignant.”
