imitating the dog (UK)
As one of UK's most original and innovative performance theatre companies, imitating the dog is peerless in innovative integration of digital media and live performance. Paying homage to spy stories during the Cold War era, Nocturnes starts with two operatives holed up in a Berlin apartment in the Russian Zone awaiting instructions. As time passes, their relationships to each other and to the orders they receive from their superiors fall apart. Performed on what appears to be a film sound stage, two actors voice a film they cannot see and never acknowledge. But who is in control? As the film gathers pace, can the past be changed? Nocturnes is as much a technological feat as a meditation on truth, control and free will.
