Rat City is a performance amidst rat cages, ultrasounds, scents and airborne affectations.
Rat City was inspired by the encounter between a rat and a human. The moment was unexpected and fleeting, as these situations often are: it was afternoon, the rat was leaning against the wall, the human came around the corner, the human and the rat met eyes, the rat fled. The human was looking for a hole in the wall or a drainage hole in the street, unable to understand where the rat had disappeared to. Somewhere there must be a gateway to another city, invisible to humans.
Rat City is a performance amidst rat cages, ultrasounds, scents and airborne affectations. It is a reflection on frictional neighbourliness and the possibility of a collegial relationship. The city of rats is always where humans are. The people are always where the rats are.
