man-cub

 

"[Mowgli] came naked, by night, alone and very hungry; yet he was not afraid!"

Transformation. A mating ground. The sense of freedom and possibility. The desperation to control a need and suppress a fear. The shared experiences of alienation and rejection. A place of sex, substances and secrecy. A place where the law of the jungle rules over all. Man-Cub was a newly devised piece that blurred the lines of movement, theatre and personal politics.

The original ensemble consisted of: Alex Britt, Michaela Mackenzie, Lizzie Manwaring, Andy McCredie, Rachel Moore, Drew Sheridan-Wheeler, Callum Tilling, Kamran Vahabi and Louise Waller.
