Attenborough and his Animals

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Comedy

The magic of David Attenborough live! A blue whale swims through the depths. Racer snakes pursue an iguana across the desert. Two hapless fools recreate wonderful scenes of the natural world. Catch this award-winning, five star show for an epic display of clowning, physical theatre and the largest range of animals you will ever see on stage. A must see for the whole family.

Presented by: Clownfish Theatre

Clownfish Theatre are a Lecoq-trained clown duo from the UK. They have toured Attenborough and his Animals around the world, with sellout seasons at Edinburgh Fringe 2019 and Adelaide Fringe 2020.
Jonathan Tilley and Jess Clough-MacRae met at world renowned physical theatre school École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq and discovered their shared love of David Attenborough’s documentaries. This spark of enthusiasm grew into a show featuring a massive range of moments from the documentaries, brought to life to vivid and hilarious effect by the duo.
