Katie & Pip celebrates the relationship between Katie, a Type 1 Diabetic teenager and Pip, her pet border collie trained by Katie to save her life on a daily basis.
On a journey of extreme highs and lows, performance-duo Charlotte and Rob alongside Katie (Rob’s younger sister) and Pip, embrace the unpredictability of flailing blood sugar levels and dangerous symptoms with the aim of staying alive; staying in the smiley zone. Making this invisible disability, visible.
A true story which began in Scotland; this performance celebrates freedom and living life to the full, with help from a live dog. Watch humans be dogs, and dogs be humans as this chaotic and unpredictable collision of youth unfolds.
At turns baffling, joyful and informative, this is a highly personal and uplifting performance piece
