The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is a part animated, part-projected musical experience. 1927 take their inspiration from a graphic novel to create a Gothic musical-esque performance piece.

The Animals and Children Took to the Streets is set in Bayou, in a part of the city feared and loathed, the home of the infamous Bayou Mansions. The Bayou Mansions are a sprawling stinking tenement block, where curtain-twitchers and peeping-toms live side by side, and the wolf… is always at the door.

When Agnes Eaves and her daughter arrive late one night, does it signal hope in this hopeless place, or has the real horror only just begun?

Founded in 2005 and based in Margate, 1927 are an associate company of HOME Manchester and Young Vic Theatre. Previously bringing GolemBetween the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea and The Magic Flute, the multi-award winning 1927 create magical filmic theatre. The unique 1927 fuse performance and live music with animation to create their trademark style.

Described as ‘ Alexander Rodchenko meets Tim Burton’ and ‘Charles Dickens meets Fritz Lang’ by The Guardian, The Animals and Children Took to the Streets fuses the contemporary comic book with the classic silent movie.

1927 seamlessly blend live music, performance and storytelling with stunning films and animation to create this wickedly twisted international hit tale. Like a giant novel bursting into life, The Animals and Children took to the Streets is a theatrical journey of startling originality.
