After a five month sell-out season at the Royal National Theatre, The Street of Crocodiles has toured to Australia, Switzerland, Lithuania, Moscow, Poland, Israel, Germany, Romania, Hungary, France, Canada and Iceland.

The Street of Crocodiles
is based on stories of Polish, Jewish writer and artist, Bruno Schulz. Recalling Characters from his past in the reinvention of his own childhood, these tales are reminicent of our sweetest nightmares and most pungent dreams. Theatre de Complicite's production captures the startling absurdity and sensual physicality of the text in this extraordinary adaptation.

"This is visual and visionary theatre...two hours of superbly orchestrated gymnastics of the imagination, in which ten actors, selfless, athletic and brilliantly controlled, dance a dance of the mind" THE SUNDAY TIMES
