ABOUT

Hog and Feather, with original music composed by Bill Wolter, consisted of five women alternately coming together or rejecting one another.  As the physical momentum built, the performers  pushed each other in order to reach specified areas of space, disregarding their engagement in rude and forceful behavior.  The performers were adults and meant to be seen as such, however, the underlying effect was children fighting over an object or for an adult’s attention.
