Catalyst was commissioned as part of Edinburgh International Festival’s My Light Shines On, a special programme of digital works for the 2020 edition of the festival.
Rehearsed and performed by the full company under Covid-19 distancing guidelines, Catalyst was captured on the Edinburgh Festival Theatre’s empty stage in a gesture of creative resilience.
