HIT is a solo performance about violence and power. 


Visitor-participants enter the gallery and encounter a woman holding training pads for martial arts. She invites them to hit her, but also coaches them in correct technique. 


During a break in punching, the woman invites participants to reflect on a battle they've been fighting and invites participants to visualize this battle while using new striking skills to beat the punching mitts with everything they've got, until they are spent.
