Giant

moon2   

23-25 May 2017

Horribly honest clowns and questionable cabaret acts ignite the stage with Human Zoo's trademark live music, puppetry, poetry and movement.

Tommy, 22, lives with three generations of his family. They've learnt to ignore the strange things his nan says over dinner and the bizarre rumblings coming from the attic...

GIANT is an explosive, absurd and visceral coming of age adventure... could Tommy's nan know more than meets the eye?

theatrical exuberance that surprises and delights at every turn... t's impossible not to be swept along by the company's hectic, endlessly inventive theatricality; a lengthy opening sequence charting several decades through non-stop music, movement and magical transformations is especially impressive, and moving too... a fine achievement
The List
Winsome, witty and inventive, this devised ensemble piece from the Human Zoo is a slow-burner that reveals unexpected depths with each scene that unfolds... It’s rare to find a devised piece such as Giant, which features such a generous ensemble as the Human Zoo, where the individual strengths of each member are celebrated without detracting from the others. They are also fortunate to have Ellan Parry's simple but versatile set that transforms from an office to a pub to a family dining room in a flash.
The Stage
a beautifully subtle and highly entertaining snapshot of a small family’s life attempting to cope with the modern world. It is utterly captivating, and a play I’d highly recommend.
Theatre Bubble

GIANT is the second of two productions brought to the Brighton Fringe by the Human Zoo Theatre Company this year. From 12-14 May you can see the company's acclaimed previous production, The Girl Who Fell In Love With The Moon.

The press on The Girl Who Fell In Love With The Moon:

a beautiful, whimsical tale told by five consummate storytellers... It is performed with panache as the company weaves its magic on the audience, who were totally absorbed and enthralled. A must-see show.

Mesmerising
A Younger Theatre
There are shades of Tim Burton, Amanda Palmer and Les Enfants Terribles (who mentored this project ) to the Human Zoo Theatre Company’s quirky anthology of star-gazing short tales, and it’s a well-worked aesthetic.
