The Animal Book

Composer-performer Michael Harren’s multi-media performance The Animal Show blends humor with candor to convey the importance of keeping all animals safe from harm. Through stories, music, and video from his residency at Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary, The Animal Show takes the audience on a ride that will inspire us to think differently about our relationships with all kinds of animals. The Animal Book contains the entire text of the show along with performance photos, video stills, and stories of the show’s tour and Harren’s activism on the road.

I spent a year visiting Tamerlaine Farm as much as I could, working with the animals, volunteering. I wrote stories about those animals, their stories, my stories about particular animals in my life who I felt transformed the way I perceived animals, and a lot of rescue stories.
