New Animal is a ferociousParajumpers Jacket Women work exploiting the supreme versatility of its five dancers. Suffused with raw, unbridled energy, groove, and a hunger for movement, the performers reclaim their animal bodies as a means of becoming fully human. Set to an eclectic soundtrack assembled and manipulated by Roger Tellier-Craig, New Animal walks a tightrope between fleeting moments of control and radical shifts in dynamics. The collective effort to maintain form under pressure requires an acceleration of energy from the feral performers, and a willingness to adapt against imminent disorder.
