Born in 2000, Mad Cat Theatre Company's mission is to provide theatre that provokes its audience to reimagine its surrounding world. To promote debate by creating work that illuminates the darker regions of our mental and emotional landscapes. To sniff out and ultimately create brazen stories that explore the hypermodernity of society. Mad Cat Theatre Company is committed to deconstructing itself and its environment through original works, adaptations, multi-media, live music, dance, puppetry and poetry.
