Imitating the dog presents NOCTURNES.

Nocturnes is a multi-media twist on a 50s spy thriller set during the height of the cold war. Two operatives holed up in a Berlin apartment in the Russian Zone await instructions. As time passes their relationship to each other and to the orders they receive from their superiors falls apart. Performed on what appears to be a flm soundstage, two actors voice a film they can’t see and never acknowledge. But who is in control? And as the flm gathers pace, can the past be changed by present-day actions? Nocturnes asks important questions about truth and free will and about how we understand what’s real in this post-truth era.

Nocturnes has been selected as part of the British Council Showcase 2017.

Age guidance 14+.



'Imitating the dog is not only a company without imitators, it is currently without peer'. Alfred Hickling, The Guardian.
