MAYDAY/ Melanie Demers

Animal Triste

MAYDAY/ Melanie Demers
Animal Triste
Friday, February 7, 2020 | 12 p.m.
Wien Experimental Theatre
Grades 7th – 12th


In Animal Triste, Demers presents the notion that in an attempt to escape the human condition, we build families and civilizations, conquer and often dominate or oppress others. She explores the theme that man is a creature of no significance who only aspires to more and better, and strives to understand the nature and posture of mankind in all its humanity.

Partly inspired by Yuval Noah Harai’s Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, a non-fiction book that surveys the history of humankind and ponders what might come next for us, Demers’ production is divided into four chapters and features four dance performers.

Heard of Diwali? A million lamps floating on a river and fireworks to wake the dead.

Heard of Holi? An explosion of color and joy and massive dry cleaning bills.

How about Onam? It could be the craziest of them all!

Indian Ink continues to bridge cultures and expand boundaries with this utterly disarming new comedy that seats the audience around the dining table and at the kitchen bench in the back room of Krishnan’s Dairy. Over one joyous evening, Mrs. Krishnan’s Party magically transforms strangers into friends through laughter, tears, good music, and great food.
