A comical, punchy look at the way we build our identities. A solo performer dresses up in high heels, animal masks and a suit jacket. He occupies different roles, tumbling through handstands, acrobatics and an array of characters. An act of grotesque, contemporary circus, it pokes fun at the rigid associations we have with certain clothes or styles of dress. Bringing out their inner animal, it’s about the common instincts binding us together. Animal Religion are a circus company based in Catalonia, making work that explores the strangeness of our everyday routines.
