The Assembly of Animals is a magical, handmade, performed sculpture which combines puppets, objects and scientific demonstrations. Magnets, motors, inflating objects, travelling glowing liquid and other mechanisms give this complex installation a movement and life of its own. 

"The Assembly of Animals demands your utmost attention even if you have no idea what is happening, and gains the hushed respect a museum of odd, but precious, things deserves. Absolutely fascinating, undeniably bonkers.” - Flossie Waite, Children's Theatre Review.

Tickets: General Rp 75,000 and Students Rp 50,000
