THE CAT SAID, "WHAT THE FUCK IS IN THE BAG?"

"a perfect mix of contemporary choreography and the avante-garde"

      -Phoenix Dance Review

 

It is the most complex concept any modern dance piece has ever been derived from. This piece tells 5 stories in reverse. Each story is developed to answer what a cat thinks is inside of a plastic bag.  The piece uses elements of surprise to create a platform for comedy. The work is filled with staccato edits that take you through the constant startling events that raise the hairs of a cat while they stare at a plastic bag blowing in the wind.
