The Eagle and the Cat (1997)

1 May 1997 – 4 May 1997 @ Jubilee Hall, Raffles Hotel


A deeply frustrated foreigner finds himself lost in a surrealist Singapore. For some unexplainable reasons, this gentleman is transformed into a cat. Yes, a four-legged feline!

In the process of seeking the way to his human form, and to understand his own problems, he reunites with an eagle from his childhood. 

The audience is invited to go on an odyssey of self-discovery as they follow this man's adventures from the depths of the drainage system to the soaring heights of the twilight sky.
