Once you've seen what New York choreographer David Parker does with Velcro, you'll never look at the hook-and-loop fabric fastener again in quite the same way. The dancers come literally unglued as they negotiate the perilous and hysterical results of wearing neck to toe velcro suits. Among the many surprising elements is the use of the velcro suits to produce a ripping percussive score. Winner: 2002 Bessie Award for Design. "Choreographer David Parker has rhythm in his bones and his heart on his sleeve. - Thea Singer, The Boston Globe.
