Description

Vessel is about radical togetherness and radical aloneness; a 21st-century reimagining of medieval Anchoritism where women choose a life of strict and irreversible enclosure, living and dying within a purpose-built cell housed in a church. The poetic and political script utilises physical choreography and linguistic polyphony as each of the four performers grapple with unity, independence and interdependence to contemplate current concerns regarding political engagement, self-preservation, agency and the nearness of history.
