Kat is a woman (she has been for quite a while now). She is a migrant (since 1999) from the Thracian Valley in Bulgaria. In 2022 (in April, surrounded by family and friends), she turned forty. To celebrate and mark this moment she gave herself the permission to do the one thing she had always wanted- to make a dance solo. Kat has always danced, but she has never before been a dancer. But then, she’s never been 40 before either.
Supported by three brilliant (female) choreographers — Liz Aggiss, Rachel Krische and Lucy Suggate (all over 40, despite appearances) — this show is the result of 40 years of joy and hardship, laughter and tears, super tunes and super moves.
