An infatuation with pets has become part of a generational identity, with millennials fuelling a spending boom on four-legged friends and Instagram awash with fluffy celebrities. This Friday Late, take part in a contemporary animal trial to reconsider human/animal relations and experience performances for pets. Explore a dog dating app and question the evolution of digital pets. See dancers explore animal domestication and uncover stories of pets within V&A collections.
Assistance dogs registered with Assistance Dogs UK are welcome, but please note pets and other animals are not permitted in the V&A.
