“Feral, fierce and surprisingly funny investigation of some of the deeper aspects of human nature”
– Raewyn Whyte, New Zealand Herald
Featuring two men fighting for survival in a precarious environment. Amanimal is a witty look at animals, men and the worlds they build and break apart. The visceral and funny work features MOTH'S characteristic blend of striking performance, absurd comedy, live music and compelling audiovisual imagery.
Amanimal premiered at Q Theatre in February 2013 as part of the Auckland Fringe Festival, where it won two Auckland Fringes Awards: 2013 Best Production, Dance; Best Performance, Dance (Ross McCormack).
The work underwent further development in 2014.
