Drill Hall Studio

An immersive choral sound bath performed by twenty singers.

Each audience member is blindfolded and 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 tender experience for curious souls… a unique examination of the human voice’s illusive power over our emotions.

A fleeting moment of quiet reflection and calm in a cluttered world
Bristol Culture

Performance that does more than what it says on the tin
