When the Cat’s Away is a play on the fictional and the real in looking at choreogaphy from different viewpoints. Fiction and action takes place in two rooms. In the first room,
we see two films in sequence. In the first film, a dancer is performing and animating elements in the room. A lamp switches on and off, clothes are exchanged and things enter and exit. In the second film the viewer sees behind scenes and in this, the construction of the piece.
Both films present a fictional room with real bodies, and from different time lines and perspectives. With subtle and humoristic elements, the film presents things as they are – maybe in the shape of a game where the fiction is real and where memory depends on your perception.
