Dead Day Dog
Dead Day Dog is a transdisciplinary project around the notion of trauma and the knot as a metaphor for trauma. Dead Day Dog looks for alternative ways of cooperation by knotting different artistic languages together through the use of scores. The research promotes an innovative and interactive relation with the audience at the intersection of different disciplines.

* Knots are always in the midst of things, while their ends are on the loose, rooting for other lines to tangle with. Like knots, our practices are the root principle of construction. Knots remember everything, and have everything to forget. Like knots, our practices are contrary forces of tension and friction, which are generative of new forms.
