A Call To You
A Call To You is a new work by Catherine Young, emerging from the urgency of the incomprehensible times we are living in. It is a call to come together, a call to explore the fragility and friction of community.
Featuring a cast of outstanding international performers, with live music directed by Young’s long-time collaborator Martin Schärer and inspired by Ukrainian folk dance traditions, A Call To You is a fervent celebration of life, togetherness and dance. It offers an antidote to division, the imagery of war and the endless rhetoric of politics. As words fail, the body speaks – untamed and unapologetic.
