VESSEL 

BY OUTER URBAN PROJECTS

 

VESSEL is a journey from one side of the world to another, through generations, time and parallel realities.  Dance, vignettes, stories and song transform into a string of intersecting encounters and a powerful aesthetic, spanning street cultural and contemporary styles.

A dance theatre work about what it means to give birth and where and what you are born into.

VESSEL features an inter-generational ensemble of dancers, performers and musicians brought together by Artistic Director Irine Vela with choreography by leading dance exponents with dancer's from Outer Urban Projects dance ensemble.
