Golden cat

The Golden Cat is a location-specific acrobatic theater show.

The show takes place in a 12 m high shanty assembly hall in Budapest. In the opening scene, a worker starts repairing a high voltage cable but enters into an abstract fantasy world after suffering an electric shock.

The three women and five men combine the movements of the contemporary dance and theater with bold wall and rock climbing techniques.

The show has no defined linear story; it’s a sequence of images and feelings that stimulates the audience to create their independent associations and own interpretations. The frame story however, makes it possible to understand the show as a coherent action.

A shorter and modified version of the Golden Cat won the   Fringe award at the Budapest Fringe Fesztivál in Budapest, 2007.
