6 Degrees Below The Horizon: Imitating The Dog Theatre Company
6 Degrees Below the Horizon is a macabre and playful tale involving sailors, pimps, barflies, chorus girls and nightclub singers. In this startling and visually stunning new work the audience view the action through windows and moving frames to piece together a modern fable of failed dreams, lost love and the guilt of absent fatherhood.
Part French film and part Edwardian vaudeville, 6 Degrees Below the Horizon takes its audience on a delightful and twisted voyage into a shadowy world, in which doing the right thing is seen to have terrible consequences.
Performed in French with English subtitles.
Over 15s only.
Winners of the 1999 National Student Drama Festival.
Since 1998, imitating the dog has devised performances that experiment with the role of story-telling and narrative in a contemporary theatrical context that are performed both in the UK and Internationally. Through the innovative combination of digital media, design and physical performance, the company creates off-kilter worlds within which public and private obsessions are explored.
'... a company at the forefront of testing the nature of theatre' (The Guardian).
