Animal Instincts

Do you remember the time… When you believed animals could speak, could feel, could be just like you?

Who didn’t cry seeing the Lion King? Sing with the Aristocats? Hope to be friends with the dog from Up? Directed by Laura and Gael, this show reminds us that as adults, we are just big kids.

Inspired by the international show Object of Affection performed by Laura and Gael around the world during their Perryweerd Tour, Animal Instincts gives anybody the opportunity to interpret animals in a thrilling story.

After a workshop of 6h minimum, the showcase will be performed with a local sound improviser (live musician or live tech improviser).
