Spirit House – 16 Feb - 5 Mar 2017.

Iconic NZ actor and screen legend Ian Mune returns to the stage to star in one of the most anticipated theatrical events of the summer. From award-winning theatre-makers Carl Bland and Ben Crowder comes the premiere of Spirit House.

Alongside the mighty Mune, in this haunting and startling theatrical event are acting heavyweights Mia Blake (The Book of Everything, Angels in America), Tim Carlsen (One Day Moko, Dirty Laundry) and a giant 6-foot cat called Claude.

Two artists occupy the same studio in Nong Khai: one in 1932, the other in 2017. Charles, all oil and pigment, paints moments frozen in time. Steven is a foot soldier for the new media economy, living and breathing the commercial system, with a brand to protect. 

Both men are visited by the same woman. She's the ultimate muse and provocateur. But who is she? And what does she want? Speaking the unspoken, her presence in both worlds will force each man to come to terms with what they've been trying oh-so-hard to forget.

Spirit House will be vivid, wild, entertaining, dramatic, beautiful, funny, provocative and will see this visionary company yet again attempt to stage the impossible.
