Zoology is the product of a yearlong immersion and collaboration between the cast and choreographer. Inspired by the music of Animal Collective, the piece is meant to reflect the perspective of a generation of young people with an overwhelmingly positive outlook in an otherwise challenging world. Zoology takes a look at us, not necessarily as animals, but recognizing that our social developments and societal habits are not all that different.
