A Call To You is a new work by Catherine Young, emerging from the urgency of the incomprehensible times we live through. It is a call to come together; to explore the fragility and friction of community. The strength of the many.

Featuring a cast of outstanding international performers and live music directed by Young’s long-time collaborator Martin Schaerer, A Call To You is a passionate 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 now speaks – untamed and unapologetic.

A Call To You is a companion piece to Catherine Young’s trilogy exploring human rights through the lens of the human body; Floating on a Dead Sea & State of Exception and the forthcoming Universal Declaration.
