World premiere.

A woman rises to her feet clutching the skull of a horse, and circling to the tune of a fiddle player. The timeless relationship between human and horse, women and the wild. Strong, fragile, beautiful and feral.

In this debut solo show, which previewed in February 2015, Ziggy brings her special combination of expressive performance and circus skill to the fearless voice and music of Rowan Rheingans. Together they slip between worlds and lives, part woman, part horse, part circus, part magic. A mesmerising journey across an open landscape and in to the night.

Two Legged Animal calls to the heart in all of us that cannot be tamed.

VOLT: Award Winner 2014
