A company described as being at the forefront of testing the nature of theatre by the Guardian, imitating the dog has been creating and touring productions all over the UK and beyond since 1998. It shares its creative process and technological expertise with students and community groups through its education programme, with previous work including The Zero Hour, set in the final moments of the Second World War in Berlin. Now, the company continues the theme with Ernest Hemingway’s First World War novel, A Farewell to Arms, presented by The Lowry and Contact. Against the backdrop of war, an ambulance driver and nurse attempt to cement love in a time of conflict – portrayed by a mixture of video, original music and breath-taking stage design. The performance has already received flattering reviews from the Guardian, The Stage and Lancashire Life.
