Now in its fourth iteration, 100 Performances for The Hole is a mini-marathon of time-based performance. Each performance lasts just two minutes and takes place in, around, in contradiction of, or is inspired by “The Hole,” a 100-year-old former sand casting pit in the floor of the SOMArts Main Gallery.
The history of the hole is one of radical self-expression and experimentation. The only rules are performances must adhere to a precise time signature of two minutes, and performers may not harm themselves or others. Past performances have included the unorthodox usage of bodily orifices, a set from a heavy metal band, and ritualistic offerings. Who knows what may transpire this year when 100 brave and experimental performers take to the hole?
