Tuesday 22 March/ 21:00 h/Arti et Amicitatie

The props include an approximation of a sheep and an approximation of a stage.
There are three actors, one person, one artist, one dog and one dead actor.
The person is a man of steel with a soul as clear as crystal.
There has been a loss. A loss of earnings or perhaps a loss of life.
Liturgy                        Loop               Repeat             Bite in ass
The actors are taken out by their ears. The dog is the witness. The judge is language.
The judge can’t hear.
The guy at at the table is a dog.
And a dog bites.
