Share this event:

Calling to You: A Tale of Ancient Wisdom in the Modern World is an evening-length modern dance concert, performed by 11 dancers and 7 musicians. This passionate and athletic work is an evocative melding of modern dance and original music that tells a story of love and forgiveness in the modern and ancient world. We follow interweaving stories of a contemporary couple struggling with emotional and spiritual disconnection, and a pair of ancient Indian lovers who, separated at youth, find each other by finding themselves. Through the evolution of the ancient couple, the modern couple comes to clearly see themselves and each other in a climax of emotional healing that audiences have found profoundly moving.

"Calling to You was spectacular in every sense and from every aspect.  It was such a pleasure to witness.  I enjoyed every minute of the performance.  I will remember my evening at the concert for the warmth, beauty and humaneness that surrounded me throughout."
      Nirupama Rao

"I had the opportunity to watch the Deborah Abel Dance Company perform in Boston, presenting their spectacular performance of Calling to You - A Tale of Ancient Wisdom in the Modern World.  The multicultural creativity of this dance company, led by the hugely talented Deborah Abel, in Calling to You is an extraordinary achievement.  Deborah Abel brings to dancing a well reflected understanding of the role of culture in human life and the possibility of combining the richness of diverse traditions across the world into an integrated and well digested synthesis.  "Calling to You - A Tale of Ancient Wisdom in the Modern World" is an astonishing illustration of just such a synthesis, combining classical Indian motifs with the use of creative traditions from elsewhere in the world, including the rapidly growing richness of "modern dance".  I do not doubt that we can confidently expect from the Deborah Abel Dance Company many further accomplishments which will continue to enrich, in their own way, manifestations of global culture in the contemporary world.  It is thrilling to see the unfolding of an extremely skilled performance, combined with a powerful vision of the global heritage of humanity."
