In a striking collaboration between the Olivier Award-winning Damien Jalet and Japanese experimental sculptor Kohei Nawa, Vessel blurs the lines between the human form and its environment.

Dates and Times: Tue 16 & Wed 17 Apr, 19:30.

Inspired by the body’s composition predominately being made up of water, the near-naked dancers inhabit a flooded stage, both reflected and hidden by its mirror-like surface.

To an electronic score by Marihiko Hara and Ryuichi Sakamoto, seven beings perform strange rituals, exploring the organic structure that floats atop the water, merging together to form a new type of entity in a visually arresting cycle of life and death.
