“I swiped on them all to see who I could meet. A hundred Manimals in a tracking spreadsheet…”


Michelle, a successful game designer, thinks she’s well on her way to winning the dating game when she starts going on dates with "Manimals" - men posing with exotic animals in their dating profiles. But when you try to win a partner at all costs, what do you lose?


A playful online show, inspired by real-world dates. Live, with audience interaction and gaming, performed through Zoom and a bespoke app commissioned from Stitch Media.


Manimals is a new, online multimedia theatre show combining interactive theatre, mobile gaming, clowning and digital art, performed live over Zoom. It is the first solo show by immersive digital performer and creator Michelle Hudson.


The first sell-out tour of Manimals was funded by Arts Council England and Canada Council for the Arts. Digital tour venues included Greenwich Theatre, The Place (Bedford), Poplar Union, and Talk is Free Theatre (Barrie, Ontario).
