CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


This thought provoking full length work portrays universal themes that are inherent in all primates through a revealing journey of submission, dominance, repression and revelation. Humanimalia challenges our perceptions of who’s watching who in performance, and exposes us to the intrinsic evolutionary complicity between humans and animals. With a sublime cast of international dancers Janis Claxton Dance present this poignant work, poetically revealing innate qualities and behaviours of the human animal in an unforgettable and moving performance. Humanimalia is inspired by Claxton’s ongoing primate research and the company’s critically acclaimed work Enclosure 44 - Humans which was performed in an animal enclosure at Edinburgh Zoo, received a Herald Angel Award and was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award. Some partial nudity.

Music Philip Pinsky. Director Janis Claxton. Choreographer Janis Claxton.
