The work of Detroit-based director Sherrine Azab and performance company A Host of People.

A Host of People is the collaboration between Sherrine Azab and Jake Hooker and, thankfully, a host of people. Sherrine and Jake come to Detroit by way of Milwaukee (Sherrine), Denver (Jake), Seattle (both schooled at Cornish College of the Arts), Brooklyn, and Berlin. Sherrine is a director/deviser, curator, and producer. Jake is a director/deviser, video designer, PhD student, teacher and producer. Their work has lived everywhere from a storefront window near Times Square, a disused hair salon in Berlin, their own home, and traditional performance spaces like On the Boards, The Kitchen, HERE Arts Center, Dixon Place, The Bushwick Starr, The Chocolate Factory, and the Performance Lab at Detroit Contemporary. Currently they are working on Life Is Happening To Us Again, a collaboration with the poet Heather Christle, created to be performed either in a domestic space or a flexible performance space. A Host of People locates our work around the idea that “alternative” and “experimental” art-making is not the elitist practice it is so often made out to be, but an inherently populist one. We strive to offer work that gives the viewer agency in their interpretation, as we work to entertain. We invite our audience into our art as we would guests into our home, whether it is in our house, on the street, in a gallery, or in a theater.
