Acclaimed French Actress and International Animal Communicator Gloria Delaneuf returns to the UK to talk her life-changing experience with the gorillas of the Kungalunga Jungle.
Assisted by her UK tour manager Josephine Cunningham, she is determined to show that man and gorilla can live "sans frontieres". Part lecture, part dramatic-reconstruction, part live-demonstration, it will be an evening that will stay with you forever.
Following on from the award-winning Gloriator, Glorilla is the hilarious new show from French/English comedy duo Spitz & Co. It has been developed as part of Bristol Old Vic's Ferment and with support from the Arts Council England.
Suitable for ages 14+
