Introduction of The Cat in (re) boots
Exchange Theatre is back on stage with a new family show : The Cat in (re) boots ! No need to introduce Charles Perrault’s Puss in Boots? Seen as a cunning joker and a thief, the cat is one of the most beloved heroes for the children as the adults! Is he just a master trickster ? As part of the 23rd South Ken Kids Festival , with themes of Kindness, Fraternity and Diversity, our anti-racism version reclaims Le Chat Botté for what he really is: all he does is out of generosity and justice and the story of the marquis de Carabas is one of the best models of social mobility. Our Cat breaks down all barriers of class and origins. He makes his master’s fortune by playing tricks on everyone, even the King, but are they tricks or justice?
In the end you just say simple things, the best way to talk to young people, without artifice. Very Good. Audience member
