Doris in Typing Pool

Typing Pool

We aim to change the world in 75 words a minute, ding! Typing Pool is an audience-immersive experience in translating the narrative of place. It is imagined for citified wildernesses of all description. You,our audience, are recruited as the Typing Pool and provided with tools for dictation. Before you is a story writ in landscape--it could be the harbor and woods, a cloudscape, a garbage barge, a stream of humanity, or fabulously priced harbour-front real estate.

Museum of Rain

Museum of Rain our next large-scale, elemental and impossible, site-specific work. A water-based installation that is physical, immersive and performative. One’s relationship with rain is undeniable for the rainforest dwellers. This narrative piece explores the ephemeral beauty, the exhilaration, and the meaning we can find in the downpour. Get your raingear on. It’s a theatrical deluge.

SLIME by Bryony Lavery


"Every [one] on earth born after June 23, 1988 belongs to what I call Generation Hot. This generation includes some two billion young people, all of whom have grown up under global warming and are fated to spend the rest of their lives confronting its mounting impacts." Mark Hertsgaard


The Only Animal creates cultivates and inspires theatre work that arises from a deep engagement with place.
