Belt Up

Solo for performer, cello, suit belts and ties | c. 18′

If masculinity is a wardrobe, what do the belts and ties represent? Combining theatre, movement, live music and some gentle audience participation, Belt Up explores the oppressive effects of detachment on a performer and his cello to take a humorous, sober look at masculinity and mental health.

“Lovely human nature / interaction with audience members”
“Warmly unpredictable”
“loved the slow, silent, sensitive ending”
