RETRO KATT, 24. - 27. October

RETRO KATT,
24. - 27. October

Tori Wrånes and Carte Blanche in imaginative collaboration.

RETRO CAT unfolds in an oversized setting. Amid imaginative surroundings, we find the rear end of a giant cat. The cat butt acts as a magical portal. The cat’s tail sways back and forth. The portal pulsates.

The moon rises with the sun. Strange creatures inhabit the stage. They sing in an unrecognizable language, yet we still understand. The figures on the stage are ambiguous in nature. Are they humans or animals, fish or birds, or something entirely different?

RETRO CAT is a performance where set design, sound, light, and dancers merge into a lively and surreal experience. Contrasts and repetitions are explored. Tori Wrånes questions both the visible and the invisible. She playfully engages with parallel worlds and with new rules.

Artist and composer Tori Wrånes has created spectacular works worldwide. In RETRO CAT, Wrånes has put her signature on choreography, composition, set design, and costume design. Enter an extraordinary world filled with visual and auditory acrobatics, mystery, seriousness, and play!
