A rhythmic, theatrical dance comedy that combines expressive facial expressions, quirky gestures and movements, and galore vocal sounds to create a far away world of human like creatures. Dressed in comical, fluffy lingerie in red and in pink, the 4 characters stomp around in figure 8 with their hips tilting forward, knees bent and palms facing up on their sides. At the end of the walk, they face each other in a circle and yell at each other with nonsense language. The variety of energy displayed, and the unexpectedness of what happens next keep the audience ate edge of their seats, but leaves a warm, upbeat feeling. Woop Woop is a vigorous blend of humor and fantasy.
Premiere: June 2003
Ghost Memories and Other Circumstances, Dance Mission, San Francisco, CA
