Did you ever wish, as a child, that you could explore the secrets of the Zoo after dark?
I, Animal is a world-first interactive experience - part multi-media tour, part theatrical experience, part animal encounter - that has been designed for adults only at Melbourne Zoo.
I, Animal uses ground-breaking technology to take you on a remarkable, and surprisingly emotive, journey through the interior of Melbourne Zoo at night.
You will embark on an unexpected, provocative adventure that explores our pre-conceptions about the animal kingdom and questions the boundaries between human and animal.
Produced in collaboration with The Border Project, the experience uses an iPod touch device - similar to that developed for the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) - that has been adapted specifically for use at the Zoo.
Guided by your personal device, the "Zöe", you will explore the Zoo at night, experiencing animal encounters, stories about the Zoo and our animals, and theatrical moments that will surprise, delight and move you.
At the end of the event, you will have the opportunity to re-group and share your experience in a magical setting, with food and alcohol available for purchase.
I, Animal is unlike anything ever offered by Zoos Victoria. We invite you to take part in an intimate journey that will change your perceptions of what it means to be both human and animal.
Book today - and discover your innermost creature.
