Today I chat with Kate Story about her latest performance “Festivus Rattus Rattus 2035”, an adaptation of the Pied Piper tale. Story and I discuss the complexities of adapting folk narratives into performance and the importance of adapting folk tales to talk about important issues. Story explores the performance’s examination of complex issues like child abuse, capitalism, climate change, and violence. Festivus Rattus Rattus 2035 is a post-apocalyptic tale set in Peterborough Ontario after a plague.
