HUG by Verity Standen
Each audience member is blindfolded. They are then individually hugged by a singer. Unable to visually gauge their surroundings, participants experience the performance through sound, breath and vibrations of the body as the choir of voices deliver the song. Playing with sense and perspective, HUG is a unique examination of the human voice's illusive power over our emotions.
Originally conceived at The Basement in Brighton, HUG has since been scratched in Liverpool, Bristol and at Battersea Arts Centre before being developed into a full performance with 30 singers at Bristol's The Wardrobe Theatre in October 2013.
