A new multidisciplinary work by Mikey J White
"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others." - George Orwell
Mikey J White's latest multidisciplinary work explores the duality of man and beast in a sexy, queer, dark, funny and provocative exposé on the human animal.
this unique fusion of theatre, music, burlesque, multimedia and spoken word Mikey looks to the animal kingdom to question society, sexuality, relationships, politics and culture and find out what it means to be 'human'...
Are we really the superior species?
