Be your dog (re-worked 2016)

by Angela Bartram

Be Your Dog analyses the relationship that positions animal bodies as hierarchically other, by offering understanding of differing perspectives within domestic cohabiting pairs of inter-species companions. Developed with seven sets of established companions in workshops over two weekends at KARST, this inter-species ‘pack’ became co-performers in a concluding public event. All participants were positioned and were visible as artists and equals. Photos by Dom Moore.
