In a remote town, two sisters prepare for society. One punch at a time.
Animal is an unrelenting, provocative and remorseless vision developed in response to violence towards women. In a remote town, two sisters hover on the edge of society. They begin a relentless quest to prepare for the predators circling outside.
Created in collaboration by Susie Dee, Kate Sherman and Nicci Wilks, with a highly acclaimed creative team including Kelly Ryall, Angus Cerini, Marg Horwell and Andy Turner, this is visceral and imagistic theatre. It shines a spotlight on the cycle of violence, creating meaning through inexorable repetition and brutal exposure on the female body.
