After 7 years of creating work in New York City, Animal Engine has packed its bags and relocated to Minneapolis, Minnesota. No stranger to these parts, the company has had three critically acclaimed runs at the Minnesota Fringe Festival: zombie circus The Vindlevoss Famiy Circus Spectacular, prairie love story Petunia and Chicken, and Peter Pan reimagining Darlings.
“We really fell in love with this community over the years, and couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining it. Audiences here are incredibly intelligent, and have a real appreciation for the performing arts,” says Karim. The company plans to keep touring both nationally and internationally, but also root itself strongly in the local community, with several productions currently being planned for 2017.
