Mammalian’s 20th Birthday Party

July 18, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 1:00 am


While they were busy making amazing work all over the world, something even more amazing happened: Mammalian turned 20!

Born in the year of the Rooster, Mammalian Diving Reflex accidentally and completely inadvertently slipped into their third decade. THIRD DECADE!! Stunned senseless by this ridiculous and seemingly impossible fact, they’ve decided that the only rational response is…to have a party.

But it’s not going to be like your typical stupid boring schmooze fest with everyone sporting that terrible hummus-and-red-wine breath. Oh no, not here, not with Mammalian. We’re going to be playing Socialist* Games, dancing to just-trained teen DJs, eating cake, doing a few dares, and, most incredible of all, providing free HAIRCUTS BY FORMER CHILDREN. YES IT’S TRUE!! The original cast of Haircuts by Children, now all 18 years old, will be making you look as sick as you did back in 2006.

Mammalian is a performance company that will do pretty much anything it takes to have a good time.
They write books, talk to strangers, get kids to cut their hair, eat crickets, talk to senior citizens about all the sex they’ve ever had, run around playing socialist* games, invite children to the adults’ table, walk at night with teenagers, pretend to be Rob Ford smoking crack, and they do dare after dare after dare after dare. After dare. They dare you to come to their party.

Who: YOU. Anyone. Everyone.
