Old Tricks New Dogs

Black Sheep Productions goes canine for an experiment in choreographic re-purposing.

In Old Tricks New Dogs, Natalie Maria Clark (Everything Anyone Ever Wanted, Little Child of Miracle) digs up the bones of old shows and throws them at a salivating pack of agile wee pooches - er, talent - to gnaw on.

The audience is invited into a bizarre yet charismatic world to examine the dangers and delights of youthful desperation, the exploitation of unquestioned authority and the notion of the performer as a "dog's body."

Accompanied by an unsettling and poignant score from Doprah's frontwoman, Indi Force, Old Tricks New Dogs celebrates young performers ready to make their pawmarks on the world with great fer-RAWR- city.
