Description: Enjoy a blend of performance, text, and visual design for an audience of just 30 per show. Kempson's Ich, Kurbisgeist is set in a harsh quasi-medieval landscape facing destruction, populated by a community speaking a rigorous, specific, and completely invented language. They sing; they dance; they harvest pumpkin seeds. All the while, they feel threatened by vaguely understood, external forces from which there is no protection. They are grounded in fear: absurd and doomed.
