THE CAT’S MOTHER
A short performance exploring the uncomfortable connection between ‘cuteness’ and empathy. This was a collaborative process with artist Craig Manson.
"A superb piece where the performers take on cat personae to demonstrate how we love cuteness, and attractiveness. A great example of using innovative form to present an important message in a new way" - Quiet Man Dave
"Katy Dye and Craig Manson took things in a challenging and unexpected direction with ‘The Cat’s Mother‘ – a show that started out cute and ended up raging against entitlement. It managed to say a lot of pertinent stuff about empathy, the media, injustice and prejudice in a very short space of time. Dye’s closing rant delivered in a child-like voice was chilling" - Circles and Stalls
