The Mammals explore new performance works embracing the genres of science fiction, horror, and phantasmagoria, as well as utilize techniques of these three genres in application to classic texts from the western canon. While appealing to a broad section of the public, science fiction, horror, and the phantasmagorical have been able to most successfully incorporate the vast inheritance of non-naturalistic performance strategies passed down from experimental pioneers of presentation and storytelling.
