I Am Not An Animal

The Border Project

World Premiere

Australia

“Adelaide’s edgiest and most innovative theatre company.”

Sunday Mail

SOLD OUT

Humanity is defined by its desire to transcend its animal nature. Yet our animal instincts still govern much of human behaviour. Following a sold out debut at the 2010 Adelaide Festival with Vs Macbeth, The Border Project returns with a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration with Adelaide Zoo.

I Am Not An Animal takes the Zoo we know and transforms it into an extraordinary performance installation. For the first time, the animals themselves become the subjects in a work of art, engaging with built objects, environments and human co-performers.

From the whispers of an intimate guided tour to large scale visual and sound installations, travel through a Zoo you have never seen before.
