Created by Greg Sinclair, a co-production with Perth Theatre
ANIMALS is a show about… animals. Big ones, little ones, wild ones, tame ones. It’s also a show about us, and our emotions. Big ones, little ones, wild ones, tame ones.
From the joy of delivering a new lamb with your own hands, to the pain of losing your pet dog, and the confusion of discovering your favourite cow is in love with a tractor! ANIMALS explores how animals help us figure stuff out.
Over the course of the last year, award-winning artist Greg Sinclair has worked with 6 year olds at three Perthshire schools, collecting the children’s stories about their real-life relationships and interactions with animals.
Performers Greg Sinclair and Hannah Venet use a variety of performance styles to bring the children’s stories to life: live music, dance, lip-synching, and film alongside the recorded voices of the children telling their own animal tales.
ANIMALS has a highly visual and physical theatrical style. Greg’s work is an exploration of how to make sound and music into a visual/physical experience. This makes it more accessible for deaf/hearing impaired individuals and can also benefit learning-disabled audience members.
Suitable for everyone 6 years old and older, their families and their friends.
Running time: 45 minutes
