One Kid and Their Dog

‘One Man and his Dog’ meets rollerdisco. A human shepherding event for street festivals.

A local shepherd and sheepdog- ‘shep’ find themselves lost in the city. They have one reliable sheep, but struggle to find any others, so resort to  ‘herding’ the public instead.

As the farming team’s confidence grows, they recruit a child shepherd to run the show, allowing for children to dictate the way the adults play in our public spaces.

Shep wears portable speakers playing Disco, Bhangra and Country. Together, the trio co-create spontaneous dance troupes with passers-by in public and pseudo public spaces.

One Kid is a brand new game from Mufti, commissioned by Strike a Light Festival. See it at Bradford Festival on 15th July, Weston Super Mare on 29th September, Strike a Light in October, and get in touch to find out more……
