You may have heard that one cat has nine lives.

 

But what if nine cats shared

one life?

Walking Cats is an autobiographical digital performance exploring identity and home, taking you on an intimate journey using “lego” puppetry and paper animation under the microscope. 

 

Using patterns and symbolism to switch between memory and reality, the show investigates nostalgia and otherness between Dongfeng Town and London in delicate miniature form. Sharing the heartbeat with the nine cats, performer Zhaolin Zhou narrates the walking cats’ story operating toys and papers with affectionate memories of family, childhood, hometown and connections in a time of isolation during the lockdown.

"clever, inventive, original and really special"
