Doors: 7pm-8:45pm

@ Village Underground, 4 Holywell Lane, London EC2A 3PQ

Tickets: £13.20 book online

www.villageunderground.co.uk/events/cat-mouse

A theatrical animation experience, involving an animated cat and mouse and a band of dogs. Expect: live music, theatrical devices, crazy cartoons, high octane action, fun and frolics, extreme violence, moments of edification, sadomasochism, the face machine, skeletons, dogs, dancing, and more! 🐱🐭

Featuring the the animations of Paul Bill Barritt (1927) with live music by Officer Pup, courtesy of composer and Edinburgh Fringe winner, Laurence Owen and band plus, we introduce Miss Lesley Ewen as The Law.

The cultural history of anthropomorphised animals is long and deep, as long and deep as the river of imagination itself. We see ourselves reflected back at ourselves within those furry beings. Cat and Mouse is one such development.

Taking its germ from the great peddler of anthropomorphised cat and mouse chaos Mr. George Herriman, it proceeds in a zigzag line through the gamut of human idiocy from art to war, from technology to industry, from civilisation to love all via the shenanigans of various humanimals mostly of the rodent/feline variety with some notably canine overseers holding court over the proceedings.

Sticking within the traditions of artistic purveyance there will be visuals in the form of animations, sets and costume, there will be live music and there will be storytelling. A theatrical animation experience unlike anything seen before, alike to everything seen once upon a time, long ago…
