What is it?
The Animals and Children took to the Streets will be visiting Brighton for a month-long festive residency at The Old Market.
Following years of international touring, 1927 revive their atmospheric hit show, first seen in 2010. Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with films and animation, this wickedly twisted show returns following its popular premiere in Sydney in 2010, four sell-out, critically acclaimed London seasons, including three at the National Theatre, as well as a global tour which saw the show visit 28 countries.
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 an original theatrical journey.
1927 is an award-winning Margate and London based company that specialises in combining performance and live music with animation and film to create magical filmic theatre.
