What is it about?

On a hot summer afternoon, the dogs in the schoolyard clamber over each other, leaping, running, eating, playing. By the fig tree at the bottom of the oval – where teachers seldom venture – everyone knows the rules, and everyone knows their place. But today things are different, the storm birds are circling, and a new dog has arrived…

Dogs in the Schoolyard explores themes of inclusion and exclusion, friendship, play, and resilience through the lens of young dogs’ experiences with other pups. It brings together sensitive storytelling and phenomenal circus skills to immerse audiences in a world ruled by dogs and with unbounded opportunities for play!
