Balloon (April 16-19, 2004)

created and directed by

Caroline Hurley RISD'04


Balloon was a 36-minute “4-D Painting” done as the senior thesis of RISD student Caroline Hurley. It is an adaptation of the film “The Red Balloon,” and, like the film, contained no real spoken dialogue. Each actor designed a short piece touching on her childhood that involved interaction with an oversized, brilliantly-colored balloon. The glorious ending involved flooding the Downstairs Space with white balloons, turning colored lights onto the audience, and declaring a dance party.
