Power, loss and companionship: this visceral, immersive double bill explores two unique journeys, grappling with distinctly similiar themes. Both tales depict the dark truths one must overcome and the happiness that can be found, even when hope seems distant.
The Dog & the Scarf uses puppetry, shadows and visual storytelling to explore one dog's love and resilience, set amongst the backdrop of wartime Germany. He determindly shows his love by bringing his master the
scarf, being rewarded with a pat
on the head. This means the whole world to him. Nothing, no distance or hateful
regime can stop the dog from his daily task. Because all he knows is trust and love.
Ariadne & the Monsters is a fresh adaptation of the classic Greek myth Theseus
and the Minotaur. It uses physical theatre, dance, spoken word and songs to
tell this legendary tale. Focusing on five major characters of the
story, it will explore themes of blame, fate, responsibility and power.
