CaRnIvAL oF tHe AniMaLs – ABOUT
Experience childish wonderment again in this off the wall and immersive theatre experience for ALL AGES!
Got Ya Back Productions twist French composer, Camille Saint-Saëns’, famous orchestral work into a mash-up of traditional and contemporary art forms; music, dance and clowning. This production is theatre unhooked, glow-bubbled and blasted back at you with beauty, fun, music & colour.
Be transported somewhere wonderfully different for an hour, as you are swooped by a giant tie-dye turtle; stuck in a swirling confetti aviary and left not wanting to leave. The fourteen animals featured in this original orchestral piece will spring off the musical score, and into your hearts in this highly interactive production for both the young and young at heart.
