Creatures Within is a theatre company all about helping people build healthy connection to themselves and deepen self-expression through works of theatre and workshops centred on Animal Work.
We channel universal archetypes into unbridled self-expression and movement and use animals as the vessel for this work. Yup, it’s as good as it sounds.
Monday 18 November 2019For one night only, step out of the human and into the wold of creature. This is our Becoming Animal Performance Night. A night for community to come and gather, shake off the limits of ‘right and wrong’ and witness human beings shapeshifting into their animal selves. It is an unapologetic night of self-expression. And trust me, you don’t want to miss it!Second Story Studio

Friday 8 February 2019BEAST is a three-hour class exploring the two big archetypes of Warrior and Villain through an animal or mythic creature of your choice. By fully embodying an animal or creature, we step out of our heads and into a body fully alive with creative impulses and desires. We are given full permission to become feral, free and fierce!The Space Dance and Arts Centre
