About the Show
"Hippoposthumous is a young, slightly nervous, and surprisingly polymathic hippopotamus living in Colombia’s lush Magdalena River- misplaced in time and space. With their future hanging in the balance, they wallow into the spotlight to explore through rhythm and rhyme the idea of “invasive species''- from Starlings in Halifax to Giraffes in Paris. This warm hearted tragicomic musical explores the duality of being an immigrant and unwitting colonizer and follows Hippoposthumous on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong."
