Meridiano Tix. Animals

Teatret Meridiano/Teater Tix


The prize-winning playwright and director Giacomo Ravicchio has created a wry, acute and humoristic mask/puppetry performance about young forbidden love in a totalitarian and violent society.

The story is inspired by George Orwell’s novels ‘Animal Farm’ and ‘1984’.

It takes place in a dictatorship, where animals long ago threw out humans and took over the society. Pigs control all the power and news, dogs control and punish, and sheep are the new lower class.

From a childhood friendship, in a world of surveillance, control, manipulation, violence and persecution, love grows between a dog from the secret police and a sheep from the house next door. In this dark and almost clown-like universe, absurd and recognizable human and animal traits blend together and one loses orientation. Is brutality inhuman? Or is it when animals act like humans that they become brutal?
