1927 Productions have won awards around the world for their dark, otherworldly shows that synchronise hand-made animation with performance, music and song. How many have you seen? Watch our trailer series for a glimpse. Their 2010 hit The Animals and Children took to the Streets returns this month for a strictly limited season. Time to get booking!
After three seasons at the National Theatre and extensive international touring, multi-award winning company 1927 brings its smash-hit The Animals and Children took to the Streets back to London for a limited season at Lyric Hammersmith from 19 February to 16 March 2019, with a press night on Friday 22 February.
As with other 1927 shows Golem, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, The Magic Flute and The Krazy Kat Project, The Animals and Children took to the Streets features the company’s hybrid combination of spoken word, film, music, song, movement and hand-made animation in a minutely choreographed harmony.
The Animals and Children took to the Streets tells the story of the 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 late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun? Like a giant graphic novel burst into life, 1927 invite the audience on a theatrical journey of startling originality.
The Animals and Children took to the Streets runs from 19 February to 16 March 2019 at the Lyric Hammersmith, King Street, London W6 0QL, with performances Mondays to Saturdays at 7.30pm, Wednesday matinees at 1.30pm and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £10-£42. CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!!
