About Gone to the Dogs

Alone in her shabby bedsit, a forgotten Britannia sits, haunted by tunes on the radio and memories of a faded past, singing grief and lost glory. Moving through a world of shadows from Arthurian myth to Brexit malaise, this mesmeric mix of theatre and song cycle explores imperial nostalgia, war memorialisation and the impossible longing for a lost golden age. Looped madrigals and cabaret cantatas mix with violin odes to evoke the fractured rituals of a magpie past. Written during and inspired by the isolation of lockdown, this new work from ‘Brechtian Kate Bush’ TSarzi is a study of England as it is now: hooked on the past and wary of the future. A genre-defying piece both astute and absurd, Gone to the Dogs is a show about nostalgia and lost identity – both of self and nation; of the tyranny of memory and the fear of irrelevancy. Age Recommendation: 12+
