Hold Music

A full-length physical theater piece

Presented at The Living Theatre and Ars Nova

Hold Music... is one of the most engaging and exciting new works of theatre I’ve seen this season... Arlo Hill is a standout as “Future Peter,” in one sequence seeming to defy gravity as he leaps from place to place on the stage until finding himself atop the piano... The excellent choreography is by Ricky and Jeffrey Kuperman.

A symphonic story about the way people listen to each other and to the world around them, HOLD MUSIC takes us on a journey into the musical world of speech and memory, language and thought. Drawing upon live music, video, movement, and text to tell intertwined and parallel stories, the performance begins with the question: Why and how does music make us feel? How do things get stuck in our head?
