\"We've all got older. We look old. And yet. We look the same. What should we feel now? Does it matter what we feel now?\"
Three sisters come together for one final remembrance of their dead father. As much younger women, they made a promise to each other, and it is time to lay their father, and their past lives, to rest.
Barking Dogs is a poetic work of profound depth and complexity from an author who challenges the conventions of the traditional theatre and makes an important new contribution to Australian performance writing.
With an introduction to the work of Norman Price by the director of the first production, Markus Wessendorf, this volume examines the familial and cultural inheritances embedded in the Australian psyche.
Barking Dogs was performed at Experimetro (Metro Arts)
after being workshopped in Paris in 1997.
