about the artist

Animikii Theatre is a Manchester based theatre company making original theatre inspired by existing stories. Animikii was created in 2014 by Adam Davies and Henry McGrath. We make original theatre inspired by existing stories that are fearlessly re-imagined. We create worlds that physically and viscerally take our audiences to the edge of new experiences. Each production differs from the last while retaining Animikii’s essential characteristics: highly visual, intensely visceral, emotionally cathartic.
