Czech Showcase @ Fringe: Spitfire Company - The Narrator

A story about secrets, about the unspeakable truth, about being a woman. Told in the only way possible. Cécile Da Costa dances, sings and undergoes extreme physical strain in order to tell her intimate story. A stunning visualisation of the deep memories the body cannot completely forget. Award-winning Spitfire return with a one-woman tour de force of spellbinding performance commitment.

Concept & directed by: Petr Bohac
Performed by: Cecile da Costa
Music: Jan Sikl and David Kollar


Herald Angel Award for One Step Before the Fall (2013)

'The experience one gains from The Narrator is physical in its nature. The intensity of the emotions the performer has to cope with is so strong that it allows no discussion'

Q&A with Spritfire Company about the dramaturgy of The Narrator


Spitfire Company is an artistic company that includes works of physical and dance theatre. It is currently one of the most progressive ensemble of author theatre in the Czech Republic. The most important and characteristic aspects of the ensemble’s work are: searching of an original physical language of each particular performance, emphasis on experiencing performer’s state of being that generates very present emotions, finding new visual stimuli, dealing with a human’s limitation and his/her existential situation. spitfirecompany.cz
