Every word is semi-recognizable: an amalgam of English, Swedish, German, and Sid Caesar. A collaboration between playwright Sibyl Kempson, director/performer Paul Lazar and choreographer Annie-B Parson, Ich, Kürbisgeist, originally co-commissioned by Performance Space 122 and The Chocolate Factory and premiered at The Chocolate Factory in 2012, installs itself on the stage at New York Live Arts and returns just in time for a spooky Halloween adventure.

Roberta Smith of the New York Times dubbed it “transcendent art,” adding that she “started shocked and disoriented and ended up completely caught up in it and grateful for what it revealed to me about what is often called ‘our common humanity.”
