When the Forest Calls offers the allure of a place hidden from the human world, neither evil or good, just mysterious and ethereal. As the battery starts to play, this ambiguous place becomes a kind of enclosed forest entrance or mass of “trees” that could be represented in a variety of ways. The show develops from a single character or visual ensemble performers progression of curiosity into this new land, all the way to the transformation of seemingly becoming one of them, just to find out the forest has turned against them in an epic plot twist!

This show features a mystical-forest film score/trailer sound with a treasure trove of fantastic sounds and colors to create with the ensemble! Celeste, children's choir swells, harp glissandi, the sounds of nature/insects/animals and tinkling mystery all work seamlessly in this fantasy world.

 This show was originally commissioned for the fall of 2021 and was released for the 2023 indoor season as a custom version adapted for indoor percussion.
