Make a HOO by Sita Pieraccini

5 Nov 2017 7:30pm

Orkney Theatre, Kirkwall


The shimmering heat of tropical hills, and the purring and humming of the Sri Lankan plains are finely tuned into existence by a young woman on a quest to find her echo in a world of repetition.

Caught in an elaborate game of call and response with a shape-shifting being which only comes to life at night, she modulates between states of dream and wakefulness in search of harmony.

Inspired by an artist residency in Sri Lanka and featuring elements of local song poetry, Make A HOO combines vivid sonic environments and dynamic physicality to weave together the story of a day and a night in the life of this young woman as she she strives to reconnect with her identity and the world in which she lives.

“Inventive and Touching” **** The Scotsman

“Startling visuals that go from an insect’s view of undergrowth to a monochromed kaleidoscope on a back screen, Pieraccini creates an absorbing and strangely recognisable world” **** Edinburgh Guide

“A deeply affecting piece. Rich in visuals, shadow play, and emotion.” TV Bomb
