HEARTS ABOVE US

SOLO CHICKEN PRODUCTIONS - THE SPIRIT PROJECT

Join The Spirit Project, a company of artists with and without intellectual and physical disabilities in a moving tribute to ourselves. 

A multi-disciplinary explosion of art, theatre, music, and film. Directed by Lisa Anne Ross, created and performed by the company and featuring a roster of all-star collaborators including music composition by Kylie Fox and videography by Strike Pictures, this show is a tribute to ourselves.

What moves the heart?

HEARTS ABOVE US, examines who we are as individuals, what moves us and makes us awesome. We are mothers, we are sons, caretakers, and friends. We are artists, bakers, comedians, and backwards words aficionados. We are sassy, luminous, and dreaming of a pontoon.

But who are we when we are together?

We are silky and silly. We are ooey, gooey maroon. We are mischief on a spoon.

 

We are better together.
