Like Animals

A parrot says ‘I love you’.
A dolphin tries to speak.
A woman spends a lifetime proving it’s not a trick.

Inspired by the true stories of research scientists working to communicate with animals, Like Animals is a funny and touching investigation into love and communication in human (and not so human) relationships. It celebrates the scientists and animals trying to understand each other, and tries to continue their work. This is a new devised performance about love, communication and grief.

Like Animals previewed at the Tron on 19th & 20th October 2018 and will return in 2019.
