Like a graphic novel burst into life, The Animals And Children Took To The Streets seamlessly synchronises live music, performance and storytelling with breath-taking film and animation.
The Animals And Children Took To The Streets invites audiences into the Bayou, a feared and loathed part of the city. There lie the Bayou Mansions; a sprawling, stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, fearing the wolf at the door.
When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?
This radical show is performed by the renowned company 1927, and follows four years of international touring success for them with Golem. The Animals And Children Took To The Streets enjoyed a hugely popular premiere in Sydney in 2010, as well as three critically acclaimed seasons at the National Theatre, and a global tour across 28 countries.
1927 is an award-winning Margate and London based company that specialises in combining performance and live music with animation and film to create magical filmic theatre. Founded in 2005 by co-artistic directors Suzanne Andrade and Paul Barritt, the Company also includes associate artist Esme Appleton, composer Lilian Henley and producer Jo Crowley.
