  • Synopsis

    Dog is a non-verbal theatre piece, which explores the parallels between modern physics and eastern mysticism, whilst searching for the place where imagination and the sciences find common ground. The play explores the ordinary and mundane aspects of life and celebrates the 'dog' in us just as much as the 'god' in us. The piece uses physical performance, dance, light, object manipulation, and soundscape.
