SCOUT is a timeless tale of the friendship between a man and a dog. Conceptualized in collaboration with the Society for Animals in Distress (SAID) and the NSA drama department, ‘Scout’ is the saga of a wily street dog who learns through the kind treatment that he receives from uGogo, that humans are not all that bad. This ‘visual theatre’ play makes use of mask work and puppetry to provide an important voice to man’s best friend. No words but perhaps a bark or two!
