"My father gave me a crocodile skull for my second birthday. I named him Horace. Horace was once a 4.5 metre long crocodile that lived on the north coast of Australia. When he was old, he swam into the mangrove swamp to return peacefully to earth, and that's where my father found him."

Horace is a duet between Renae Shadler and a crocodile skull. The pop-up piece focuses on the regenerative cycle of life and is based on Renae's true story about her lifelong friendship with this bone and their many adventures together. The audience moves through worlds full of underwater creatures, becomes Horace's prey and tries to escape him, swims in the bottomless ocean with all its secrets and beauties, and finally becomes crocodiles. Horace raises the question of how we can coexist with animal companions and their environment and be friends with living creatures long after they have died.
