"Cry Wolf" is a dance-theater production that interlaces the urgency of climate change awareness with the classic narrative of "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." The project transforms the familiar fable into a contemporary allegory about the dangers of ignoring repeated warnings, both environmental and ethical. Through a blend of highly physical choreography, text, and direct audience interaction, the show challenges spectators to discern truth from deception amidst a flood of information. Utilizing humor, "Cry Wolf" explores themes of responsibility, misinformation, and communal consequence, making it a poignant commentary on the state of our world's climate discourse and democratic engagement.
