Anima is based on imagery and stories related to light and darkness, from the magical use of light in Renaissance painting, through to the illusionist effect of shadow theatre. Some of the more absurdist imagery in Anima is a result of collecting household lamps, and exploring the comic effect of using them outside their everyday context. The ensemble also invited residents of Brighton to contribute to the making of the piece by sharing and recording personal stories evoked by the theme of light and darkness. With elements of promenade theatre, the Ensemble takes its audience on a journey both outdoors and into a space transformed by light.

Anima was created in response to, and performed at the West Hill Community Hall in Brighton, and obtained the Argus Angel Award for its performances in Brighton fringe festival 2011.

Directed by Yael karavan. Performed by Linda Remahl, Bruno Humberto, Rachel Champion, Tamar Daly, Sara Popowa and Marion Deprez. Live music and sound composition by Tristan Shorr
