About Make A Hoo by Sita Pieraccini in association with Feral

Make A HOO by Sita Pieraccini in association with Feral

Age 12+

The shimmering heat of tropical hills, and the purring and humming of the Sri Lankan plains set the scene for a young woman’s journey as she strives to reconnect with her identity and the world in which she lives. Caught in an elaborate game of call and response with a shape-shifting being which only comes to life at night, the woman struggles to find her echo in a world of repetition.
Inspired by an artist residency in Sri Lanka and featuring elements of local folk songs, 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.
Supported by Feral, Creative Scotland, Manipulate Festival and Paisley Arts Centre.

“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
'Pieraccini is such a fine actor that her face and body seem to contain the whole tragedy of humanity’s double-edged relationship with nature.' – Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman **** (On Bird)

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Make A Hoo by Sita Pieraccini in association with Feral are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
