A new co-production between Curious Seed and Lung Ha Theatre Company in association with Lyra.
The kind of party that everyone wants an invite to!
We Are All Just Little Creatures is a performance celebrating all the wonderful, weird and wee things about being alive! What do we all have in common? Of course, we’re all born, and we all die, but so much else that connects and divides us happens in between – this work will explore the myriad ways that human beings continually find to express their inner and outer worlds. For some it’s easy to talk about what it is to be human, others need to dance or sing; some people like to be neat, others make a mess; some of us shout while others whisper, and a few will take delight in noticing the tiny details around us every day.
The audience were be invited to take a moment to contemplate, share, perhaps argue about, but ultimately celebrate the delightful diversity of our humanity through the creation of little (but big) life stories – culminating in the kind of party that everyone wants an invite to!

Through 35 years of ground-breaking theatre work with adults with learning disabilities, Lung Ha of Edinburgh has become a world leading theatre company in its field.Over that time, though, I’ve rarely seen the company find such a perfect fit between artists and material as they achieve in this lushly beautiful 70 minutes of dreamlike physical theatre.Joyce McMillan – The Scotsman
