A nocturnal tour of any city reveals anonymous individuals in the throes of a spiritual crisis, the result of uncontrollable consumerism and exploitation of the neoliberal model. A lack of answers - far beyond money and material goods - leads these characters to search for the hidden evil that inhabits the city and capture it in a bottle.

Although Espíritu was developed prior to the social uprising in Chile in October 2019, the script identifies the uncomfortable symptoms bothering Chilean society and, although it doesn’t refer to this unease directly, it does deal with it poetically. This fast-paced piece combines several different stories, a nocturnal atmosphere and a style that mixes humor and pain. Live music gives the sensation of a midnight concert and songs, choirs and dances tell the story of the crisis that led to a huge social uprising.
