The Animals and Children Took to the Streets (24th Feb, 2.30pm)
Theatre lovers are in for a treat this February as British Council in the UAE and DUCTAC present a brilliantly inventive new show The Animals and the Children Took to the Streets; an incredible mix of live music, physical theatre and film brought to life by 1927, an award-winning theatre company who have been described by The Times newspaper as ‘frighteningly gifted’
In this wickedly twisted tale, 1927 welcome audiences to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed, wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions; a sprawling stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf is always at the door. When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive there late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?
Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, this entrancing show is sure to be a hit with fans of theatre, film, animation and live art, as well as those who simply want to be transported into another world straight from the pages of a graphic novel!
Like a giant novel burst into life, 1927, The British Council in the UAE & DUCTAC invite you on a theatrical journey of startling originality.
The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is part of DUCTAC’s Season 11/12, a multidisciplinary arts festival featuring a host of high-calibre artists and performers from around the globe.
