Is it possible to trace a connection between ‘culture’ and ‘body culture’, between the ‘art sphere’ and the ‘fashion sphere’? Is there a connection between the theatre and the catwalk? By examining the modern artist’s understanding of herself, in Walk Cat, Walk! these questions become matter of subject for the theatre itself. On reality TV or in the star-primed interviews of the film industry natural talent and distinctive personality are emphasised. In Walk Cat, Walk the spotlights are reversed and directed towards the culture industry’s own “following spots”. Theatre is turned into catwalk and catwalk into theatre. Thus criticism becomes self-criticism: “The truth in the theatre ended in the 1950s,” declared a well-known Norwegian theatre voice some time ago. The truth about the theatre, however, might still be made a theme? To acclaim – as one often does – that the theatre’s job today is to convey an “archetypical story” about man, is at the same time to turn one’s back on a historic reality of technological revolutions, shifting ideals and profound economic and political changes. What once was true in the theatre, might not be true any more:The full-bodied women of the baroque period are substituted by an anorectic Posh-Spice, the bow and the arrow by the heat-seeking laser weapon, and the monks’ hand-written manuscripts by the hypertext on the Internet. Thus, in Walk Cat, Walk! there isn’t any uniform storyline or story either, but a bundle of images and fragments. Related to form, the idea has been to borrow form from music’s “Variations on a theme”. The theme “Talk-show” pegs out its claim and is followed up through its scenic variations, as if it were variations on the art scene’s own “backroom”. From silent monologues, by way of more or less realistic, dramatic sequences to actors who sing their own sound- track on stage, Walk Cat, Walk! includes six such variations altogether:

Theme: Talk-show

2. Variation: Double-play
3. Variation: Audition-Jam
4. Variation: Thinking Chorus - “The Original Story About Ourselves”
5. Variation: Hunting Lights

MELLOM ROM

-Innledende øvelse

Gjennom veggene på et hotellrom

-lave stemmer, plutselige dunk, skrik, stillhet, mer stillhet, latter. Elsker de hverandre der inne? Slår de? Hva gjør de, hvem er de og hva er de? 

Gjennom veggene på et annet hotellrom (n aborommet?)

-en pianist øver. Om og om igjen. Puccinis ufullendte opera, Turandot.  Den eventyrlige, mange vil nok si mislykkede operaen. Den om isprinsessen, prinsen og slavinnen. Den som sluttet uten slutt fordi komponisten døde, eller fordi han døde fordi historien ikke gikk opp og det hele ble umulig. Hvorfor spiller han akkurat den i kveld? Hvem snakker han med? Er han egentlig alene der inne? Hva øver han til? Og hvor lenge skal han plage naboen sin med dette? 

Den som har bodd litt på...
