PLEASE, HOLD ME
Creation 2021 I Length loops 15 mins
PLEASE, HOLD ME is a participative performance installation that places the dance in the audiences’ hands. It is a solo for two: a performer and an active person from the audience are connected without direct contact. The creation explores the multi-layered principle of "support". The audience personally experiments with the dimensions of "support" and chooses whether to be an immovable weight or a supportive prop to the performance.
With PLEASE, HOLD ME choreographer Nunzio Impellizzeri reminds us of the importance of the arts and revitalises public perceptions of dance in a time when culture is being restricted worldwide.
