The Circus Animals’ Desertion

A major new dance theatre performance The Circus Animals’ Desertion is a poetic response to the imagining of nations, inspired by the Automatic Script experiments of Georgie and William Butler Yeats  in which they called upon the spirit world to assist with their creativity.
