What happens if animals adopt human behaviour? If survival instincts meet polite manners? With humour but also weirdness, both performers act with naturalistic animal masks on stage. The duo plays with the perception and will, permanently defying the audience’s expectations. Choreographer Sonia Franken and performing artist Gonzalo Barahona were awarded the Fritz-Wortelmann-price (City of Bochum and German Forum for Puppet Theatre and Puppetry) for this Performance.
