Chocolate hoop is literally a melting pot of contemporary circus and visual art. It reveals the presumptions we might have about equipment and body. The trick never comes and even the instrument is useless. Chocolate hoop is a simple, humorous, and a little bit nasty performance.
Direction Sofi Häkkinen
Performer Miradonna Sirkka
Production: Recoer Laboratory / Inna Huttunen
Performed in Cirko festival August 2017
”The performer licked the hands of the sculptor. The chocolate melts on the skin with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop, with every twirl of the hoop. The sculptor sculpted a circle out of chocolate, the instrument of chocolate starts to melt starts to melt starts to melt starts to melt with the movement of the performer. A sweet smell lingered in the hot air, the chocolate imprints the circus equipment on the performer’s skin as it melts as it melts as it melts as it melts. The sculptor sculpts, equipments come and go, the hoop twirls and twirls.”
