A radical reimagining of Orwell's Animal Farm 

Animal Farm tells the story of a group of animals who rebel against their owner
in the hope of creating a better society —where they work less and live more.
In this energetic and irreverent interpretation, Louise White explores the spectrum of morality, injustice and the human condition. Taking influences from philosophy, sociology, live art and pop culture, this performance asks; what happens when we obey without asking questions? 

Featuring six performers, four musicians and an innovative design team, Animals
experiments with the tools of theatre to reveal the instruments of power.
