Event program

The Animals and Children took to the Streets
1927 (UK)

Welcome to the Bayou, a feared and loathed part of the city wherein lies the infamous 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?

1927 invite you to a dystopian metropolis of inner city paranoia. Seamlessly synchronising live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation, this is the wickedly twisted new tale from the multiple award-winning company behind the 2009 Perth Festival hit Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

[I was] completely and utterly captivated by what can only be called a delightfully imaginative and spellbinding work of art. AUSTRALIAN STAGE

I can’t begin to capture the enchantment, the joy, the attention to seizing drama of watching this company in action. HERALD SUN

Its razor-sharp folding of animation and performance makes extremely seductive theatre. ALISON CROGGON, THEATRE CRITIC

This is a perfect alternative Christmas show. In fact, it is a perfect alternative show. In fact, it is a perfect show. THE FINANCIAL TIMES
