History. Myth. Remembering. What stories can we tell each other of our past?
Created and written by the company, A Spark and a Beating Heart is about us; who we are, how we came here and why we do what we do. Itís a celebration and a love-letter, a party and an elegy. Mixing the many myths of the firebird with a collective reflection on lives lived. We are here to tell you our story.
Yes, a spark and a beating heart full of fire, just before the story starts or the lights come up, us small players become the main act.
