Vaudevisuals Interview with ‘Tommy Award’ winning performance group ANIMALS

Sitting in the Dixon Place theater interviewing the "Tommy Award" winning performance trio ANIMALS about their work and how they met. Great fun!
ANIMALS is Nikki Calonge, Michael De Angelis and Mike Mikos. Their work includes dance, video, puppetry and crafted objects to serve elements of surprise, cultural exchange and irreverence to create moments that question the flexibility of the world and the nature of humans through instinct, ability and play. ANIMALS has performed at the Bushwick Starr, Invisible Dog, Dixon Place, Three-Legged Dog Art and Technology Center and Incubator Arts Project.
