Trap Door Theatre’s production of the Seventies German play, Blood on the Cat’s Neck, takes to the Tinta Roja stage in Poble Sec for a week at the beginning of the month. The absurdist nature of the play fits perfectly into the surroundings of Tinta Roja, a space which defines itself as somewhere between variety theatre and circus. The hour-long, English-language play explores the idea of how an alien might view humanity, the alien in question being Sixties comic book character, Phoebe Zeitgeist. The story follows her as she makes her way through human encounters on a journey that is headed for decadence and destruction. Trap Door Theatre was established in the early Nineties as a nomadic group that delivered avant-garde expressionism to theatres across Europe, before settling down in Chicago. The company, directed by Beata Pilch, has recently found a new home here in Barcelona and this is the first production by the international branch.
