What does it take to create an empire? Intellect? Skill? Or mere animal instincts?
Imperio Animalia retells the novel of George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” as parable of oppression through the medium of performance, and an investigation on the promises and foundation of democracy. Originally devised as an engaging and highly interactive open to the public piece, it takes the form of a children’s play and a live installation art piece in one, allowing audiences from all ages and world views to participate as we question equality, values and the meaning of a utopian society. Roar, howl and growl with Imperio Animalia.
