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 power.

★★★★★ TimeOut: 'To feel somebody's thorax vibrate as they tackle an elaborate countermelody feels like the most immediate, visceral experience of music as human expression possible, not just hearing the music but feeling it physically course through you, your whole body singing like an antenna to heaven.'
'I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.' Walt Whitman – Song of Myself
