Vessel is a journey from one side of the world to another, through generations, time and parallel realities.
VESSEL is a dance theatre work spanning street, cultural and contemporary styles. It is about what it means to give birth and where and what you are born into. A 15 year old girl carries water down a steep hill in a barren mountain landscape and makes a pledge to her unborn child. Dance, vignettes, stories and song transform into a string of intersecting encounters and a powerful aesthetic.
VESSEL features an inter-generational ensemble of dancers, performers and musicians brought together by Outer Urban Projects’ Artistic Director Irine Vela with choreography by some of Australia’s leading dance exponents, Thomas E. S. Kelly, Nebahat Erpolat and Demi Sorono.
