Hook and Loop
This piece is comprised of five performers, each clad in industrial grade Velcro suits and masks, who repeatedly collide and pull apart from each other filling the REDCAT lobby with the particular sounds of Velcro. Created specifically for intermission, the audience becomes as much a participant in the work as they are a spectator, as their otherwise leisure time is interjected with the forceful physical and emotional entanglements of the performers. By implicating the audience, the piece raises questions surrounding spectatorship and collective social responsibility.
Hook and Loop was performed at REDCAT as part of the 2016 spring Studio Program. The program was curated by Joey Cannizzaro, Stacy Dawson Stearns and Edgar Miramontes.
Performed by: Nuri Baylerian, Maria Bang Espersen, Lizzie Geocaris, Lázaro Rábago and Max Syron.
