Everyone’s here for the AGM – the Animals’ General Meeting – but as usual one species hasn’t turned up, and it’s the species which has been causing all the trouble… The humans.
Buzzard, Rabbit and Porpoise know that something’s got to be done, but they need you to grab your species ID badge, step into the paws of your favourite creatures and help the humans work out how to be better neighbours to all the other animals. Whatever happens, it’s going to be wild!
Fun, interactive and featuring original songs, Animals! is an empowering and uplifting performance about animals, humans and nature. It celebrates the amazing wildlife around us and makes big things feel possible.
Created for children 6+, Animals! is suitable for the whole family. Dens & Signals bring people together to create connections, shared moments, and future possibilities.

Subsequently the show toured to primary schools, community settings and an outdoor festival in Coventry as part of Coventry City of Culture; to primary schools in Hastings and Rother with support from the Fonthill Foundation; to Hastings Museum & Art Gallery; and Quarterhoues, Folkestone.
