What defines an unusual creature? Join us on November 19th to find out...

Odd animals like blobfish, elephant shrews, giant Chinese salamanders, and other bizarre beasts slither, hop, swim, and jump in projected images and videos while being portrayed in music by author and composer Michael Hearst. He takes the audience on a fun, interactive investigation through the kingdom of weird animals with the help of his bandmates and a variety of quirky instruments.
