These troubling hybrids

“Freaks of Nature is what we are, Genetically modified by our dear departed Papa…”

Be amazed and bewildered by the weird and wonderful results of one man’s lifetime obsession – creating the perfect Showbird. These troubling hybrids are showgirls of a bygone era crossed with extinct birds from around the world. The Frankensteinish father of these bizarre creatures is now long gone but his extraordinary family lives on, locked into a life on the road, wedded to the unending show. Freaks of Nature is Feral Theatre’s new walkabout clown show. It asks challenging questions about gender stereotypes and assumptions; genetically modified organisms; spectacle and complicity.
