Cat Meme Reperformances focuses on physically replicating the Internet cat meme genre and sharing the documentation of the performances; thus following the nature of the meme by replicating and sharing in the hopes of survival in the ‘meme­pool.’ The meme reperformances are experiments to see if an actor can embody an Internet meme with little aid from props, sets, and digital manipulation. We omit the use of major costumes, makeup, and text. We question whether or not the meme will be still evident, and whether or not it will continue to replicate in its new format.
