COMPOSER JETHRO COOKE IS PIGLET.

We are a mischievous theatre company that takes great pleasure in playing with form and expectations.

We use spectacular visuals and twisted narrative techniques to provoke our audiences into reevaluating core beliefs and assumptions.

We make work with diverse creatives for diverse audiences, and are dedicated to accessibility and equality.

We are inspired by international work, particularly from Germany and Japan.

All of our performances are Extra-Live. 

Founded by Shawn Soh and Max Barton, PIGDOG is proudly supported by University of Arts London Seed Fund and Richard Furstenheim.

Extra-Live


ALL OUR PERFORMANCES ARE EXTRA-LIVE!

The Extra-Live movement has grown out of the increasingly more widespread 'relaxed' performance. Relaxed shows (often erroneously assumed to only apply to children) welcome audience members who find it difficult or impossible to conform to the regular conventions of theatre 'etiquette'. The Extra-Live movement recognises that relaxing these rules and changing assumptions about how involved an audience can be has value above and beyond the obvious and important access benefits. Not only does this embrace a fundamental liveness that is unique to theatre, it also has the capacity to break down other social and cultural barriers for potential audience groups that assume theatre is uptight, requires a strict dress code and isn't for them.
