I am writing a new show for Edinburgh this year. The show aims to be entertaining, thought-provoking and moving, and will be 6 or 7 poems about dogs inspired a range of dog concerns and issues (domestication, smell capabilities, breeds, feral dogs etc.) woven together with entertaining “golden nuggets” from recent scientific research and psychology of dogs, and performance elements. It has been inspired by our own dog Lola, as well as research and work with dog and human-animal interaction researchers at the University of Liverpool. It should last about 40-45 minutes but I wouldn’t need to do all of it. As a preview show it would be great to get feedback from people as to what worked for them, and what didn’t so much.
