Seamlessly synchronizing live music, performance and storytelling with stunning film and animation, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is the ‘wickedly twisted’ second show from multiple award-winning company 1927.

Trust no-one. Suspect even your own shadow. Welcome to the Bayou, a part of the city feared and loathed, wherein lies the infamous Bayou Mansions: a stinking sprawling tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is described as a theatrical journey of startling originality, like a giant graphic novel burst into life.

Produced by Joanna Crowley, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is created by 1927 and directed and written by Suzanne Andrade, with film, animation and design by Paul Barritt, music by Lillian Henley and costume by Sarah Munro and Esme Appleton.

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets was co-commissioned by BAC, Malthouse Theatre Melbourne and The Showroom (University of Chichester).
