The Polar Bear Chronicles takes an intriguing look into the restricted lives of enclosure animals through expressive contemporary dance and movement.

Kate Sullivan (Head of Dance at AAGS), Susannah Smith-Roy (Ghost on Shortland Street) and Jack Ansett (comedian) will take a unique journey to Singapore Zoo.

All we've been told is there is an enclosure full of neglected bears who are green with algae, so naturally they've won our attention with a resounding 'why?' All answers will be uncovered throughout this wild journey of physical theatre, dance and a healthy dose of comedy.

If you love a bit of surprise, then this show will leave a lot to the imagination, and has been created by three talented Auckland performers.
