Six degrees below the horizon

Brooks, Peter, Imitating the Dog Theatre Company (2011) Six degrees below the horizon. [Performance]

Type of Research: Performance
Creators: Brooks, Peter
Group or Collective Creators: 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.

Building on the recent successes of Hotel Methuselah and Kellerman, Leeds based imitating the dog create a memorable and immersive experience for the audience in this captivating fusion of cinema and theatre. Part French film, part Edwardian vaudeville and drawing on the works of Genet, Wedekind, and Brecht, 6 Degrees Below the Horizon takes its audiences on a delightful and twisted voyage into a shadowy world in which there are no certainties.
