Journey to an exotic landscape of moving sculptures, inhabited by an array of exquisite robotic animals - elephants, antelopes, giant tortoises, birds, snails and caterpillars.

Built to reflect human feeling and imagination, Amit Drori's handcrafted mechanical bestiary is made of wood and appears to come straight out of Leonardo da Vinci's imagination.

With its lifelike movement, beautiful paper-cut projections and atmospheric sounds, this intriguing production brings the African savanna into the theatre.

At the end of the performance you are invited to stay behind to look at the animals close-up, and to talk to the performers.

‘Ageless and enchanting.’ Badische Zeitung (Switzerland)

'The observation of animals is superb, gorgeously realised in mechanical detail. There are 'ohhhs' of wonder and delight as each new animal emerges.' Independent ★★★★★
