A cat walks on Kilburn High Road.
Underneath a pine tree, the cat meets itself walking on Dongfeng Road in its hometown.
From that moment, memories flashback, two cities merge.

Walking Cats is an autobiographical performance exploring homesickness and migrant identity using live feed, object theatre, paper collages and soundscape, taking audiences on an intimate, magical journey with stories from the heart about family and hometown.

Using colour, patterns, sound to switch between memory and reality, the story evolves within a summer’s day in delicate miniature form. Sharing heartbeats with the cats, the performer narrates walking cats’ story operating toys, papers with affectionate memories of family, childhood, and connections in a time of isolation during lockdown.

Commissioned by LAMDA MishMash Festival, Walking Cats is supported by Arts Council England, Curious School of Puppetry, Camden People’s Theatre, The Space, Omnibus Theatre, Rumah and Tramshed.
