WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following a celebrated run at the Edinburgh Festival, Verity Standen's choral sound bath for 25 singers and 25 audience members receives its London premiere as part of Southbank Centre's Chorus Festival. HUG is an intimate and interactive performance where each audience member is blindfolded and individually hugged by a singer. Unable to visually gauge their surroundings, participants experience the performance through sound, breath and the vibrations of the body as the choir of voices deliver the song. Praised by The Guardian as a ?startling, moving and genuinely immersive' experience, HUG plays with the senses and examines the power of the human voice over our emotions. Age guidance 18+
