Espíritu / Spirit

Teatro Anónimo, Chile

Zwinger 1
in Spanish with German supertitles
[recommended for ages 15 and up ]

»Even though ›Spirit‹ was created before the social upheavals in Chile in October 2019, the production captures the latent discontent and tensions within the Chilean society in a very precise and poetic manner. It was palpable then and is still present today.« — The Curators

Roaming through a random city at night. Three poets set out to capture the hidden evil of the city in a bottle. »Spirit« mirrors the uneasiness that haunts contemporary societies and looks at the issue from a poetic perspective. Presented in a humorous and dramatic way, the production consists of different stories with several characters played by three performers. Dialogues, monologues, dances, baroque choirs and live music tell of the crisis of a society that has forgotten to cultivate its spirit.

Since 2018, the company Teatro Anónimo has been working on theatre plays that set a political sign against the governing consumerism and that take audiences along on a journey full of humour, live music and surprising changes of pace so that they can actively experience the play.
