AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Dark at the Top of the Stairs is a visual theatre experience that navigates the wilderness of the imagination by integrating puppetry with projected image, physical performance, original music and text. It is a landscape of the mind affected by fear and the tension that exists when we try to create logical answers for things that we can't ever understand.'
