The Trials: Fortune’s Desire

The company’s first Creative Cycle was inspired by the historic medieval trails of the Templar Knights. It was developed and performed in the beautiful Gothic church of St. Stephen’s-in-the-fields by Kensington Market, and was lit by candlelight. The Cycle began in 1992 with its first instalment produced in October 1992. The final phase, titled The Trials – Fortune’s Desire, premiered in the fall of 1994.
