PentHouss presents a new performance work CALL TO ARMS exploring themes of policing, control and governance.

Opening in London in October 2021, CALL TO ARMS is a new immersive artwork by PentHouss that uses dance, sound, light, optical illusion to explore themes of governmental power, control, and social unrest.

PentHouss’ artists Anna Lann and Yonathan Trichter, in collaboration with curator Helen Neven and choreographer Ekin Bernay, use performance to convey a direct experience of political mobilisation, appropriating the tools, movements and uniforms used by systems of power themselves. An exposé of the theatrics of order enforcement, CALL TO ARMS reflects on the complex relationship between agents of power and the civilians they supposedly protect; on the instrumentalisation of fear; on the duality of “them” and “us” at street level. Movement is dance; movement is assembly; movement is a call to arms.
