WHAT IS SEA DOG THEATER?

SEA DOG THEATER was founded in 2016 after two successful collaborations between Christopher Domig and Janelle Garcia: the international tour of DIRT (New York, London, Berlin, Edinburgh, Vancouver BC), and The Waste Land, designed and co-directed by Daniel Domig (Laity Lodge, Texas and International Fringe Festival, New York). Together they discovered that the central questions in their work addressed the theme of alienation and reconciliation. They founded SEA DOG THEATER in order to explore in greater depths how the experience of alienation and reconciliation pervades all aspects of the human condition. 

The term SEA DOG may refer to an experienced sailor, a 16th century Elizabethan pirate, or a rainbow-like formation seen in foggy conditions.

We chose the name SEA DOG THEATER because life both on and off the stage feels much like being out to sea: we have every intention of reaching land, but due to storms, diminishing provisions, and the possibility of chaos on board, there is no guarantee we will reach our destination. Occasionally, we see a rainbow-like formation and wonder what to make of it.
