Spirit
30 August till 05 October - Richmond
Spirit takes the audience on a captivating journey of ordinary people’s otherworldly experiences. The puppetry moves from delicate marionette to table top and from object theatre to shadows. The visuals of the show are constructed around the voices of real people relating personal stories and contemplating life and living. Their reflections and narratives are humorous, inspiring and in some cases deeply moving.
