ANIMAL takes us on a journey of discovery through a series of slightly surreal farm fables served up with a touch of irreverence, impressive virtuosity and the company’s signature comic touch. In this reinvented agricultural world, the farm is turned upside down and the barn’s inside out!

A gentleman farmer has surrounded himself with some familiar but slightly outlandish creatures: the chickens have teeth, the ducks are slightly menacing and the cows are kicking up a fuss. In this “farm fantasy,” the imagination conjures up stories from childhood, rural life proves to be both energetic and poetic, and clichés are joyfully turned on their head. Yet again, the clan of family and friends that make up Cirque Alfonse has favoured a multidisciplinary approach where circus, song, dance and theatre all come together, driven by original live music—an irresistible mix of trad and soul that the troupe calls agricultural funk!

A production for young and old alike, animal is the farm gone haywire!
