Staged Solo Performance

 

Violet Harlo’s stage work is multi-layered, often incorporating kinetic props, soundscapes, charismatic costumes, live video projection, and a unique form of cognitive mapping.

Harlo seeks to create a multi-sensory experience so that the artwork is not just what is happening on stage, but also what audience members conjure in their minds of the various strands to take with them when they leave the theater.
