Hippoposthumous

♫ Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong? Or better yet- known that you didn’t belong?

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, Hippoposthumous embarks on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong. 

This warm hearted tragicomic play with original music will be performed in and around Point Pleasant Park’s ‘Quarry Pond’ and is sure to make a splash at the 2021 Halifax Fringe Festival!
