Rat Life is a series of spoken word performances that explore different aspects of living as a 20-something and clueless person, trying to find identity and meaning while also making every mistake possible. We are two young women, who find solace in distancing ourselves from human restrictions by metaphorically becoming part rat.
We try to navigate womanhood, humanhood, and rodent-hood through text, delve into topics of gender, sexuality, ambition, desire and societal expectations, all while manoeuvring the daily challenges of ADHD. Rat life falls somewhere in between storytelling and physical theatre, and is equally silly and sincere.
