Cheap Hoops (2005)

Cheap Hoops Better

Fun, groovy and playful. Wearing simple black outfits, the dancers propel colorful hula hoops into motion around their bodies. Tension mounts as hoops are passed between them and the audience can sympathize with the dancers in their struggle and triumph in sustaining the hoops aloft. (8 minutes)

CHOREOGRAPHY: Jody Sperling / ORIGINAL SCORE: Quentin Chiappetta / COSTUMES: Jill Hockett

“In Cheap Hoops, hula-hoops eddy the air around three dancers with four-way hips in a funky-chicken boogaloo.” –Chris Dohse, New York Press
