We’ve decided to put some of our previous show recordings online to fill a few hours for people and hopefully go some way towards filling the void of cancelled shows and events in the next few weeks. We’ll be releasing them every two weeks so please keep an eye on @imitatingthedog on Twitter and Instagram for information.
Just click on the shows below to start watching…and if you have 2 minutes we’d love to hear from you on our audience questionnaire.
Why not buy a ticket?
We’re offering this video to watch for free but now, more than ever, we’re looking to fund the development of new pieces and keep our freelance artists making work. If you are able to then please consider donating what you can via the Paypal button below. All income raised this way will go to freelance artists to make work:
