Little Thunder. Saint Catherine of Siena theatrical concert by actress Julianna Bloodgood and composer Katarzyna Szwed, musical director Lilianna Krych and Warsaw Stage Society. It is the result of field research carried out in Siena, Italy, the aim of which was to reach authentic sources of knowledge about the context of Saint Catherine’s life.

“It is actually an extensive ritual in which eight women of different ages and shapes become an emanation of the Eternal Feminine.”
