Drawing a Tiger Like a Dog is a myth about lost humanity.
A story of place from beyond, where logic has no sense and dreams are served for food.
Where Gods appear in many forms, carrying with them unwelcome things.
What people thought would happen, never did. What they did not expect, the Gods made happen.
Humans are pure embodiment of everything we fear.
That’s what this laughing story, inspired by us humans, will reveal.
How deep and serious can the content of a dance performance really be?

I’ve rearly, if ever seen a production with such glory in its execution and such repulsive content. What makes one feel disgusted – and perhaps deliberately – is the content with its perspective on world and humans. The worst thing is that the negative nature of the performance is executed with such talent and taste that one only can admire…
You have seen 1,5 h of immense and extreme physical theatre ...something very pessimistic and dark – definitely no entertainment in for Christmas. You don’t feel cathartic after this performance. With its apocalyptic sights it’s rather a mind burning experience.
