A music documentary by Antoine Prum
LUX/UK 2014, 128 min., Stereo
2 DVD & 1 CD
Taking the Dog for a Walk maps the scene of British Improvised Music, past and present. Alternating with extended music sequences, the conversations led by stand up comedian Stewart Lee gravitate around the idiosyncrasies of improvisation, from playing in front of the proverbial ‘four men and a dog’ to pursuing a career in a milieu where success is not measured by mainstream criteria.
