 OUR ART

Explore the places we’ve taken our art through the years.

Taking theatre places it has never been before

The Only Animal creates immersive work that arises from a deep engagement with place.

The natural world is our media: water, sand, snow and ice and trees

The natural world is our media: water, sand, snow and ice and trees

We mix this media with theatrical adventurism, and a love of the extreme.

Our work seeks to reconnect our human nature with Nature.

Our work seeks to reconnect our human nature with Nature.

Here we forge new ways of understanding of how to be on earth.

 

 

TALKING ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE

SPEAKING UP

The Only Animal is often asked to speak about their work at the intersection of art and climate. We are known for our commitment to creating theatre within a carbon budget that aligns with a livable future of 1.5 degree Celsius temperature rise and for our core values which include Equity, Diversity and Inclusion, Climate Justice,  Buy Nothing New, No-Fly, and Local Focus/Global Responsibility. 

FROM THE FRONTLINES OF CLIMATE ACTION

ARTIST BRIGADE

Artist Brigade is a leaderless, national movement. Our goal is to bring imagination, vision and the heart of artists into the telling of the climate story in order to mobilize a society paralyzed by climate anxiety and grief. We work in cross-sector partnerships with those currently telling the climate narrative, environmental organizations, activists, scientists, journalists, and scholars.
