Hoop Installation for *Esprit de Hoop
Hoopers! No matter how long you have been hooping, you have no doubt been inspired by this community. That is why I want YOU to contribute to this community art piece! +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ For two days, colorful hoops will hang in an installation am calling, "Esprit de Hoop" (Spirit of the Hoop) at 55 Broadway in the Financial District. Each hoop is a contribution from a member of our NYC hooping community, and each is accompanied by a message about how the hooper’s life has transformed for the better by participating in this community. The installation serves as a tangible representation of our community’s connections, which continues to deepen and grow exponentially. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Most likely, the people who come across this installation will have NO IDEA what hooping is, or how much it has enriched our lives. I need YOUR HELP to show them just how much hooping and the community means to you. So - I am humbly requesting to BORROW a hoop from each of you.(Maybe it's the one that was gifted to you at a festival, maybe it's your favorite (okay 2nd favorite ;) - I know it's hoop outside weather right now) polypro - perhaps it is the first hoop you ever had... I would like you to write (largely, please, with sharpie!) on (colorful!) paper a few words about how hooping or the hoop community has enriched your life. LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD! ** I would like to keep it in the mental/emotional/spiritual realm, as opposed to the physical. ** Yes, hooping helps keep us physically active and strong, but we all know it goes deeper than that. During those days, we will ALSO be dancing in that space! Please consider joining us for that, as well! Here's that event link: https://www.facebook.com/events/1791264817869747/ I am aiming to collect as many hoops as possible! (Can we get 100?!) The hoops and your heartfelt messages will hang in the windows at 55 Broadway, June 14 & 15 for all to see! I am collecting hoops and messages at the following times/places: Tuesday, May 30th Battery Dance (380 Broadway) 8:30 - 9:30 pm Tuesday, June 6th Battery Dance (380 Broadway) 8:30 - 9:30 pm Saturday, June 3rd FIGMENT - near the jam - confirmation coming shortly - You are also free to drop off at my apartment - PM me for exact address, very close to the Church Ave B/Q in Brooklyn. My schedule is insane right now, but will likely be there most weeknights after 6pm. We are installing the hoops on June 13 - I have access to the building at 7 pm, so you may also swing by 55 Broadway to drop off your hoop and heartfelt note between 7 and 10 pm. YES! Can't wait to see what we create together! xo Amy FB EVENT: https://www.facebook.com/events/130237754209973/
