To Carte Blanche – the Norwegian national company of contemporary dance, movement and dance is a universal language in the everyday lives of children, adults and those who are mature of age, regardless of background and experience. Therefore, the ensemble welcomes the whole family to this year's Bergen International Festival performance RETRO CAT

RETRO CAT is a playful, absurd performance where you'll find the rear end of a giant cat amid imaginative surroundings. Norwegian artist and composer Tori Wrånes has created spectacular works of art worldwide. In this world premiere of RETRO CAT, Wrånes' artistic signature is all over: on the choreography, composition, set design, and costume design.

Over several years, Carte Blanche's family performances have received good feedback from the audience. Here, the audience is allowed to make sounds and move around at will.
