You Animal, You

View the human experience as a contest as Arts House is transformed into an intimate arena for the taboo-busting You Animal, You.

We like to think of ourselves as evolved but hidden deep beneath our public façade our animal selves are lurking, waiting to escape. This provocative, bold dance theatre work examines just what it is that makes us human in a desensitised age.

Created with a diverse cast of multidisciplinary artists You Animal, You is a visually and aurally arresting production that weaves powerful personal stories into a visceral exploration of our drives and desires. With the show unfolding in the round, you’ll feel the full force of the fierce action and interpersonal tension as five humans grapple with their repressed selves and fight for their place in the pecking order of life.

Presented by Arts House and Force Majeure, commissioned by Sydney Festival as part of Dance Massive 2019
