Hyena Subpoena

Cat Kidd—School of Contemporary Dancers

A few other people had mentioned this show to me and I am glad they did. This spoken word performance by Montreal’s Cat Kidd was a real treat. She tells six tales in rhyme which have a root in the animals of Africa, but as she moves through the stories she starts to relate the challenges of survival that the animals face to the challenges of youth for some young women. Each story is very well crafted and the turns of phrase are brilliant. The staging was wonderful using only a few simple items such as a tent and a cloth to serve as screens for the projected images of the animals and the titles of the tales/poems. The background soundscapes by Jacky Murda also set the mood perfectly.
