The first Dachshund U.N., a 2010 Next Wave Festival project, was held on the Melbourne Museum plaza on 15 May.
Created by Perth artist Bennett Miller and performed by over fifty local dachshunds and their owners, the event was a popular and slightly absurd spectacular, as the U.N. Human Rights Committee was recreated with sausage dogs in place of the usual human delegates.
This video shows highlights from the setting up and staging of Dachshund U.N. Two more performances, on Saturday 22 and 29 May, will be held from 2-3 pm. Dachshund U.N. is a free event.
