The Call Of The Wild  
             

"AS A TOKEN OF WHAT A PUPPET THING life is, the ancient song surged through him and he came into his own again"
from The Call of the Wild by Jack London

The classic story of Buck, a dog stolen from the comfort of his California home and thrust into the merciless life of a sledge dog in the Yukon Gold Rush in 1897. He has to learn the laws of the wild and while the men around him descend into depravity, corrupted by their desire for gold, he is ennobled by the experience.

Blind Summit translate this epic story into a "Cardboard Puppet Arctic Ballet" set to Mahler's 1st Symphony, performed by BA (Hons) Acting - Collaborative and Devised Theatre students, with design and make assistance from the BA (Hons) CDT and the BATP Puppetry Course at Central School of Speech and Drama.

Commissioned by Central School of Speech and Drama.
