We make old stories new.
Animal Engine turns classic literature on its head with their deceptively minimalist, physically expressive style. Founded in 2011, they perform original theatrical works and teach their unique approach to writing and performance across the United States and internationally. Past productions include the 4-time award-winning Willa Cather-inspired love story “Petunia and Chicken” and the critically acclaimed Peter Pan retelling “Darlings.” The company is led by two artistic directors; partners Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher, both graduates of the London International School of Performing Arts. New works are performed both in the company’s hometown of New York City and throughout North America at festivals, theaters, and schools.
