Thomas Noone Dance Presents “The Cat Who Wanted to Change History”
“La gata que quería cambiar la historia” or “The Cat Who Wanted to Change History”, is a dazzling performance comprised of dance, puppetry, and visuals, catering to audiences of all ages. This production is inspired by an Indian tale and illustrates the adventures of a diverse assembly of animals, including a cat, an owl, a mouse, and a lizard, cohabiting in a Banyan tree.
The enchanting quartet brings to life a tale that explores themes of friendship, trust, and cooperation. The cat, owl, lizard, and mouse all share the Banyan tree as their home, but their relationship is far from congenial, revolving more around the predator-prey dynamic. They all coexist in fear of the creature ranking above them in the tree.
However, everything changes when the cat falls into a hunter’s trap and the mouse helps her escape under the condition that she will never harm him. This narrative reflects on trust and loyalty, in stark contrast to the natural laws of survival.
The recommended age for this prodigious show is six years and upward, making it a perfect family entertainment experience.
