The Call
(2023 - ongoing)

The Call is a performance project in which religious leaders from different traditions share the stage to talk about their personal lives and their spiritual calling. Through memories, hi/stories, songs and ceremonies, the performers go from the mundane to the sublime, creating an aesthetic experience that merges autobiography, ritual and performance.

Throughout 6 months, participants took part in a devising process where they explored performative ways to approach their personal lives (memories, family stories, intimate ceremonies) in relation to their calling - going from the mundane to the sublime and creating an aesthetic experience that merges autobiography, ritual and performance.

By investigating different stories, notions and behaviours related to spirituality, the project looks into different ways of searching for meaning in the contemporary world while also posing the question: is it possible to share the stage/space with someone whose ideology seems to be completely different from mine?
