And the Cats Dance by the Light

April 15 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm


Harry and Mary live alone with their cat. Their son and granddaughter visit occasionally, coming and going, their lives shifting further from the family home. As Mary’s primary caregiver, Harry has shouldered his responsibilities with cheerfulness and optimism, but when his health reaches a critical point – he finds himself struggling. Can he still choose his life with Mary? Can he accept the reality of change? And will the cat ever help? Life continues to bring the unexpected, and the family must make their way.

Through devised movement and puppetry, with humour and gentle observation, And the Cats Dance by the Light invites audiences to reflect on the intricate tapestry of human connection. From the original script, The Wind Came Home (2014) written by Kok Heng Leun and adapted together with Tan Wei Ting, this reimagined play is directed by Tan Beng Tian and performed by the ITI graduating class of 2024.

And the Cats Dance by the Light was adapted from The Wind Came Home (2014), written and staged as part of ‘Both Sides, Now’, originally co-presented by Drama Box and ArtsWok Collaborative

Admission for ages 12 and above.

This performance features the use of creative captioning.
