A call with no one on the other line. An accidental call you didn’t mean to make. Wrongly addressed letters. Ghost Call explores the idea behind one-sided communication and its effects on a person. A collaboration between playwright Nabilah Said and Raw Moves, Ghost Call is an experiment exploring the intersection between movement, text and the raw emotional connection with the audience.
“It is a conceptually strong piece of work that captures the bittersweet sensations of modern communication that brings us closer in a myriad of ways, but perhaps ultimately distances us from each other.”
“We feel a warm and fuzzy feeling from that single moment of genuine interaction, impressed with how Nabilah and the dancers have created this story… genuinely sparking a sense of curiosity and fear of missing out at almost all times.”
