Presented by Split Knuckle Theatre
In this fresh and engaging piece of physical theatre, Split Knuckle Theatre uses desks, chairs, and filing cabinets to create a world of ice, snow, and mountains. Through precise and elegant movement and gesture, they create inventive images that surprise and delight.
Trapped in Antarctica with no hope of rescue, the great British explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton kept 27 men alive for two years in the most inhospitable climate on earth. Ninety-five years later, in the worst economic meltdown since the Great Depression, Hartford insurance man Walter Spivey, struggling to justify his recent promotion and save his employees’ jobs, relives Shackleton’s story. Can one of the greatest leaders in human history inspire him to conquer the corporate world?
Join the internationally acclaimed Split Knuckle Theatre Company in a funny, physical and moving exploration of how the human spirit can conquer any obstacle with wit, humor, and invention.
