‘Spirits of Christmas' is a modern take on the Ghosts of Christmas featured in Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol’, with three fantastical and ethereal walkabout characters wearing beautifully illuminated, sculptural costumes depicting Christmas through three ages - Past, Present and Future. The characters are wrapped in layers of decorative trinkets, colourful gadgets and futuristic materials.
The act is a visual delight and a joyous celebration of the traditions of feasting and exchanging gifts; embracing the beauty and joy of the season as well as the dazzling consumerist aspect wrapped up with seasonal indulgence. The visual aspect is enlivened by trademark Mischief humorous interaction between the three characters and the public at large.
'Spirits of Christmas' has been developed and produced thanks to funding from Creative Scotland.
