Dog is Dog - a performance: DOG IS DOG is performed by 4 interpreters using gestures of repetition and staged characteristics as parroting, mimesis and memorizing through the legacy, agency and ethics of themselves. Active employment of taboos such as visible translation and agency to enhance differences are being negotiated in an improvised cacophony of words. By employing these strategies the aim is to allow for a translated dialogue not necessarily making sense in a literary way rather for the audience to listen to the dramaturgy of sound.
