Zoo Humans

Urban Playground

Inspired by news that three quarters of young people in the UK spend less time outdoors than prisoners, Zoo Humans sees The Urban Playground Team bring their distinctive performance-parkour and Attenborough’s smooth narrative to a group of humans on the verge of forgetting how to move.

As they slowly become aware of the artificial world in which they’re living, they must decide if they’ll swap touchscreens for human contact and risk the comfort of their cage for the lure of the great outdoors. Through a unique language of dance at speed and height, they ask, what will it take to get us moving again, before it’s too late?

Following the 5pm performance there’s a chance to join in as part of stay and play activity.

Touch tours are also available for this show on Sunday 7 August at 2.45pm and 4.45pm.
