Photo Flash: First Look at HOOKED at Toronto Fringe
Through contemporary and jazz movement, Hooked looks at seven characters and how they function with their own increasingly addictive dependencies. It explores the possibility of a dependency-free world and the ensuing chaos when the characters are left with their own insecurities. What happens when the things we put so much worth in are taken away? How do we cope? Do we?
