Crap at Animals

Sat 31 Aug - Sun 1 Sep | 1pm & 5.30pm | Well Hall Pleasance, Eltham, SE9 6SZ

Duration: 45 Minutes

One man tries heroically and fails epically to do impressions of 48,000 rare animals in under an hour. 

Come and explore the diversity and beauty of life in this wildly playful theatrical trip through the animal kingdom, with performance artist Tom Bailey. Using projection, VR and playful physical theatre Tom will take you on a rollercoaster ride into the world of extinct and endangered species.  

Crap at Animals is supported by The Royal Borough of Greenwich, Royal Greenwich Festivals, Without Walls and Arts Council England.   

Crap at Animals is commissioned by Without Walls, Norfolk & Norwich Festival and EFFEA, Passage Festival Denmark
