Geist is an abstracted ghost hunt. An attempt to connect with past times and energies, the imperceptible, transition zones, and more-than-human existences. The protagonists of the performance - a harp, an oboe, a swinging microphone, and a pair of mic’ed up high heeled boots - take us through a performative score based on historical games and methods for communicating with and summoning the supernatural.
