We tell ourselves all sorts of stories about animals. Animals fly through our mythology, our unconscious, our cultural history and our literature; they run through our folk tales; they crawl through our dreams.

But what do animals perceive, when they perceive us?

Sheep Pig Goat is a creative research studio by Fevered Sleep exploring how well humans see animals as they really are – not as we tell ourselves they are - through a series of improvised encounters between human performers and animal spectators. Unusually for a project in the early stages of research, this one is entirely open to the public.

As part of Sheep Pig Goat, explore the inner lives of animals, and the complex relationships that bind them and us together through a series of Contextual Conversations with leading scientists, researchers and artists hosted by dramaturg Ruth Little.
