The Hug Project (in creation)

The Hug Project is a series of full-length performances inspired by an embrace between the choreographer and a war veteran. This experience led to a poem. The poem takes root in the choreographer’s research into intergenerational trauma, aftermath of war and conflicts, and the feeling of guilt inspired primarily by the aforementioned encounter with a war veteran from a historically belligerent enemy.
