Do you own a dachshund or who someone who does? It’s probably been pestering you for a while, asking when it will get its big break. It’s grown tired of all the regular dog stuff. Going to the shops, enduring the seemingly endless ‘sausage’ remarks. You owe your dachshund a shot at the big time. Its chance has arrived.
Fierce Festival, returns next year from 29 March to 8 April and are currently recruiting 60 (yes, 60) dachshunds from across the West Midlands to participate in one of their projects which will be performed in a central location during the festival.
Bennett Miller’s ‘Dachshund U.N.’ is a replica of the former United Nations office in Geneva which will hold a meeting of the Commission of Human Rights. Each of the 47 nations will be represented by a dachshund. The piece is a ‘playful and often chaotic comment on the aspirations of the Commission of Human Rights, and our capacity as humans to imagine and achieve a universal system of justice.’
Miller has worked with dachshunds in his past work and will start meeting dogs from Monday 5 December. Those who are interested in participating should email firstname.lastname@example.org
