by Akulah Bimbo Sakti

SYNOPSIS

Akulah Bimbo Sakti revisits Si Woof Woof (The Story of Woof Woof), a collaborative piece between visual artists and theatre/performance art practitioners in Singapore. Set in a surreal landscape, the story of the relationship between a childless couple and a dog unfolds.

A married couple is childless. Each day, the wife climbs onto the roof of their house and jumps off from sunrise to sunset. Meanwhile, the husband digs a hole large enough to bury a man. At night, the husband nurses the wife's wounds while whispering songs of love and tenderness.

One day, an injured and hungry dog, Woof Woof, appears at their doorstep, but it is beaten and chased away by the couple. Woof Woof returns again and again until the husband takes pity on the dog and begins to nurse and feed him. The relationship between man and dog grows, making the wife jealous. Threatened by their blurring relationship, the wife decides to save her marriage at all costs.
