Spirit Summary

From the London-based company Improbable (whose members created Shockheaded Peter and 70 Hill Lane), comes Spirit, which begins and ends with three performers meeting onstage, with no scripted lines to say and no story to act out. In between is a story of three bakers who are three brothers. Spirit is about the three performers struggling to tell the story of the three brothers. Along the way there are headless puppets, strange dancing, deeply personal reminiscence and subtle, almost imperceptible improvisation. It is teasing, sad and funny, a serious joke about the cycles of conflict on the personal and the global level, and maybe just a feeling about how we might break out of them.
