ERNST invites you to his birthday, the trained monkey turns eighty! Time to look back at a life between the glamor of the circus, and a longing for the jungle.

Dancer Alma Toaspern is ERNST in a stage design by Danish artist Christian Friedländer. What’s it like to have been domesticated for decades? Is the human an animal? Or the animal a human?
