THE BEX presents 100 HoopDancers from NYC and beyond, performing in a colorful, campy, multi-tiered, 10min choreographed hoop spectacle

“HELLO!100” Is a restaging of Bex Burton’s 2011 Figment performance, “HELLO! A Spontaneous Dance for an Infinite Number of Hoopers: An Epic Tale of True Love.”  In HELLO!100, Bex invites 100 HoopDancers from New York and beyond, to perform in this colorful, campy, multi-tiered, 10-minute choreographed HoopDance.

A real “Epic Tale of True Love” unfolded in Bex's life while producing the original work, reflecting the love story woven within the lyrics of the piece. This art-to-life happening inspired the restaging of the piece at New York's premier arts festival, Figment

HELLO!100 offers an accessible opportunity for hoopers of all skill level to perform in a unique hoop happening, a free-to-the public live performance of epic proportions for Figment audiences, and inspiration for all who experience HELLO!100 that True Love exists.

Read the Epic Tale behind the dance

Check out the original piece from 2011

See our plans for HELLO100! this June in New York, including how you can participate as a HoopDancer!
