"The Assembly of Animals demands your utmost attention even if you have no idea what is happening, and gains the hushed respect a museum of odd, but precious, things deserves. Absolutely fascinating, undeniably bonkers."
– Flossie Waite, Children's Theatre Review

The Assembly of Animals is a performed sculpture which combines puppets, objects and scientific demonstrations.

Children and adults alike are invited to witness the inner workings of a laboratory as it searches for life in material.

A series of red curtains are drawn to reveal an intricate sequence of operations bringing to life a fragile universe of animals within animals.

At the centre of it all is the shape of the animal: a head, a body and four legs. The shape gets taken apart, enlarged, shrunk, rearranged into different versions and stretched to the edges of recognition.
