We Had A Black DogWe Had A Black Dog image

People who’ve had a "black dog" in their lives often say that in retrospect, “the black dog” probably had been sniffing around for a long time. A lack of communication and understanding often leads to "the black dog" ruling people's lives until they cannot see the world around them clearly.

Performed to a live vocal soundscape 'We Had A Black Dog' is a physical theatre piece that attempts to deal with the role of depression today. Drawing on interviews conducted with people who have dealt with depression 'We Had A Black Dog' aims to fully address this issue in a world full of connotations imprinted on depression.
