Part of World Premiere Wisconsin, a statewide festival celebrating new plays and musicals
Dating back nearly 5,000 years, hoop earrings are powerful symbols telling stories of home, love, resistance, protection, and freedom across a multitude of cultures and communities. Based on intimate interviews that bring to life the portrait subjects of Milwaukee artist Nicole Acosta’s internationally acclaimed HOOPS Project–and with a vibe-worthy get-up-and-groove tailor-made score from Milwaukee’s own B~Free–HOOPS celebrates the journey to self-discovery and belonging, identity and culture, and so much more.
