Oog leads you deep into the fractured mind of a shell-shocked soldier. An intensely physical, and poetic, exploration of the trauma of conflict and the psychological damage it inflicts. A new dance-theatre piece from multi-award-winning choreographer-performer, Al Seed.

Oog is a companion piece to The Factory, which won the Jury Prize at the Arena Festival, Nuremberg, was shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award, and enjoyed performances at the ICA, London, as part of London International Mime Festival, 2006.

Visual imagery that sometimes takes the breath away… An experience that will leave no-one who sees it completely unchangedScotsman, 2014

As a sequel to The Factory, it’s a brilliant denouement but Oog works, impressively, in its own right with Seed in storming form. Herald, 2014

…one of the most precise and visceral performers working today. Exeunt Magazine, 2014
