Two sisters prepare for society.
one punch at a time.
Acclaimed theatre makers Susie Dee, Kate Sherman and Nicci Wilks come together to present the world premiere of Animal, an unflinching examination of violence against women.
In a remote town, two sisters hover on the edge of society. Through heightened physicality and visceral splendour, Animal explores the cycle of violence some are born into and asks the question, how do women respond to a world that celebrates the brutishness of men?
‘Director Susie Dee should be commended for shaping such vivid performances’ – Cameron Woodhead, The Age on Patricia Cornelius’ Shit
