WE AS CATS

This is a piece about girls’ thoughts on sisterhood and the potential of fantasy and visions. Sisterhood as defined gestures of friendship and feminism, resistance and truths knitted together in an intertwined common experience. With catty dances, revealing conversations, fury dreams and pulsing sound and voices the two human cats invites the audience to a place of sisterhood as the normative state. When the human cats get dressed as cats as in very fury furs, long sharp nails and other catty attributes then the performance is real.
