Where Manimals excels is the synergy between performance, application, and audience interaction, vastly succeeding where others falter.

Michelle, a successful game designer, thinks she’s well on her way to winning the dating game when she starts going on dates with Manimals – men posing with exotic animals in their dating profiles. But when you try to win a partner at all costs, what do you lose?

A playfully filthy online show, inspired by real-world dates. Live, with audience interaction and gaming, performed over Zoom.

Asking viewers to re-evaluate from where and whom they seek to fulfill their animal desires, Manimals swipes some welcome organized chaos over the dreary screens of online dating.
