Spirit of the Torch (2017, 2018)

interactive theater

A 5-hour long interactive narrative experience in the style of nostalgic campfire tales. Spirit asks participants to imagine this:
An abandoned summer camp. An ominous legend. Relationships you'll never forget now that you knew you had them! Participants reunite as a group of friends who are returning to their childhood summer camp. Together, they relive the magic of campfires, s'mores, legends, lore…. That is, until, the spirits of the past awaken. Alongside a company of "interactors" and in the actual outdoor wilderness, participants co-create an epic experience never completely the same twice.

WHAT IS THE EXPERIENCE LIKE?
“I had the time of my life!” - A.W., Spirit of the Torch participant
“You can’t really explain this, you have to experience it.” -J.L., Spirit of the Torch participant
